ROCHESTER, Minn.- While many working breastfeeding mothers have to pump in public restrooms, kitchens, or even at their desks, IBM's Rochester Campus offers their own private lactation rooms, complete with comfortable seating, a microwave, sink and more.
That's how they earned the new ranking of 8th Most Impressive Company Lactation Lounge in The US by "Working Mother" which is a national magazine committed to helping moms balance their personal and professional lives.
One working mother who uses this room tells KIMT there is no way a mother can go the whole work day without pumping.
"It's really nice to be able to use a room that's specifically dedicated to that. It's comfortable its private it has a lock on the door as well as things like the microwave because if you need to sanitize your bottles and parts and things like that you can get the little bags and throw them in there and sanitize everything."
