Mother and Baby Resources
Texas Mother Friendly Workplace
TTUHSC's Lubbock and Abilene campus have been designated Texas Mother Friendly Workplaces. These campus have met the standards set by the state to provide a private space, flexible break scheduling and support for mothers who choose to express breastmilk for their babies.
Nursing Mother Rooms
TTUHSC acknowledges that a women's choice to breastfeed benefits the family, the employer and society. Nursing mother rooms are available on several TTUHSC campuses for students, faculty and staff to utilize as needed. These rooms provide a safe, quiet and private space to express milk at the workplace by using hospital grade pumps permanently located in each room. Rooms can be found in the following locations:
Abilene Campus: ABSON 2701
Lubbock Campus: 3A167
Permian Basin: 1232 (GME Suite 1229)
I was so happy and relieved to see there was a refrigerator in the room, not to mention several different pumps. Knowing I could keep my milk stored safely and making sure I had all the equipment was a huge relief. – Amy P. APRN Student (LBK)
