UConn Health is committed to promoting a positive work life integration for its employees. As part of these efforts, we are pleased to provide lactation resources to ensure that the needs of breastfeeding women are met. Lactation rooms are available for employees, students and visitors who wish to express milk.

Under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), employers are required to provide a reasonable amount of break time and private space to express milk as frequently as needed. In addition, the Affordable Care Act requires health insurance to provide coverage for breast pumps. Please contact your health insurance provider for more specific information about what is covered.
