Lactation Rooms in Courthouses - A Handbook and Guide

The Florida Association for Women Lawyers has formed a Lactation Task Force Committee. FAWL has an online handbook which is an excellent resource: https://www.fawl.org/assets/docs/FAWL%20Courthouse%20Lactation%20Room%20Handbook%202019_06_13.pdf

 

 

In addition to supporting the needs of women working in the legal field, lactation rooms also promote access to justice by allowing women jurors, witnesses, and other patrons of the courthouse to be able to go the courthouse with the comfort of knowing they will have an appropriate place to pump or nurse their child.

 

For those outside the legal field, the handbook provides a general "best practices" for establishing lactation rooms, best practices for room access, sample protocol for use of the room, and photos as well.
