November 20, 2014 – Dallas, TX – Hale Publishing is releasing a new book with information for universities and organizations to implement lactation rooms in their facilities and offices. Breastfeeding Best Practices in Higher Education, written by Michele L. Vancour, PhD, MPH and Michele K. Griswold, MPH, RN, IBCLC outlines best practices from universities who have established breastfeeding-friendly programs for students, faculty and staff.
 
While the publication documents the success stories of major universities who have implemented such programs, the book provides a wealth of information for any company or organization looking to make changes as required by the Affordable Care Act of 2010. The authors describe how different universities found space for lactation rooms and provide literature, breastfeeding pumps and for some, even a vending machine with pump supplies.
 
The authors are passionate about removing barriers for breastfeeding employees in the higher education setting that goes beyond the establishment of lactation spaces. Both authors highlight, “The policies and programs in this book highlight a holistic approach to changing the environment on campus so that breastfeeding mothers can achieve their full potential at work and at home. Women should not have to make choices between health and work, they and their children deserve to have both.” The book is currently available for pre-sale from Hale Publishing and can be purchased directly from www.halepublishing.com.
