The Stanford University Redwood City campus offers lactation spaces (breastfeeding rooms) in each of the administrative buildings providing campus moms with a space to express breast milk or feed their infants when needed. New moms are given first priority to reserve time in designated spaces.
All wellness and lactation spaces are equipped with a comfy recliner, sink, mini fridge, microwave and a small table; select rooms include a modified workspace.

RESERVATION PROCESS You may reserve wellness/lactation spaces in two ways:
Teem panel located outside each wellness room: Click the “+” sign to start the process of scheduling. A scheduling assistant will pop up and the “meeting” will start immediately. You will need to enter the end time (see room etiquette above). Once end time is entered, tap the “Reserve Now” button to finalize the schedule. Schedule a meeting in Outlook: similar to other meeting invites, create a meeting and enter the wellness/lactation room number in the "location" section. You may also "search rooms" in Outlook using the "Scheduling Assistant" button.
ROOM ETIQUETTE Please observe the following guidelines to ensure a safe and relaxing environment for all:
Typically rooms are reserved for 30 minutes at a time, however, some individuals may need longer.
Be mindful and don't overextend your reservation time. If you are more than 15 minutes late, consider rescheduling so as to not impact other reservations
Check Teem panel before use; reserve the space in advance
Always leave the room clean and reset for the next person
Priority for Nursing Parents All second floor wellness rooms are prioritized to support and accommodate nursing parents who wish to carry out their breastfeeding goals after returning to work. This means, nursing parents will have first right to reserve time in these designated rooms.
Section 7 of the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938 (29 U.S.C. 207) is amended by adding at the end the following:
1:(r)An employer shall provide—
(A) a reasonable break time for an employee to express breast milk for her nursing child for 1 year after the child’s birth each time such employee has need to express the milk; and
(B) a place, other than a bathroom, that is shielded from view and free from intrusion from coworkers and the public, which may be used by an employee to express breast milk.
2: An employer shall not be required to compensate an employee receiving reasonable break time under paragraph (1) for any work time spent for such purpose.
3: An employer that employs less than 50 employees shall not be subject to the requirements of this subsection, if such requirements would impose an undue hardship by causing the employer significant difficulty or expense when considered in relation to the size, financial resources, nature, or structure of the employer’s business.
