Résumé : Background: There is little published about lactation accommodations in public spaces.
Objective: The objective of this study was to determine what lactation facilities, if any, convention centers in the United
States are providing to accommodate breastfeeding moms.
Methods: A list of national convention centers was collected from meetings-conventions.com and recorded in an Excel
spreadsheet, with the name of the center, total meeting square feet, number of meeting rooms, address, and telephone
number. Each convention center was contacted by phone and administered the survey. Questions were asked as to what
type of lactation accommodations were available, if any.
Results: A response rate of 78.7% (326 of 414 convention centers) was achieved. A mere 5.5% reported permanently designated
lactation rooms, whereas 32% made temporary accommodations. While the phone survey was conducted, a wide variety of
qualitative responses were provided by participants, demonstrating an overall lack of awareness of this as a public health issue.
Conclusion: Return to work and breastfeeding in public are commonly reported barriers to breastfeeding. This survey
clearly demonstrates a lack of accommodations in very public areas that are visited by women on a regular basis. Policy
changes are necessary so all women can be supported in reaching their personal breastfeeding goals. [Résumé de l'auteur]

Résumé : Background: The Surgeon General’s Call to Action to Support Breastfeeding details the need for comprehensive employer lactation support programs. Our institution has an extensive employee lactation program, and our breastfeeding initiation and continuation rates are statistically significantly higher than state and national data, with more than 20% of our employees breastfeeding for more than 1 year.
Objective: The objective of this research was complete secondary data analysis of qualitative data collected as part of a larger study on breastfeeding outcomes. In the larger study, 545 women who returned to work full or part time completed an online survey with the ability to provide free text qualitative data and feedback regarding their experiences with breastfeeding after return to work.
Methods: Qualitative data were pulled from the online survey platform. The responses to these questions were analyzed using conventional content analysis by the research team (2 PhD-prepared nurse researchers trained and experienced in qualitative methodologies and 1 research assistant) in order to complete a thematic analysis of the survey data.
Results: Analysis of the data yielded 5 major themes: (1) positive reflections, (2) nonsupportive environment/work culture, (3) supportive environment/work culture, (4) accessibility of resources, and (5) internal barriers. The themes that emerged from this research clearly indicate that even in a hospital with an extensive employee lactation program, women have varied experiences—some more positive than others.
Conclusion: Returning to work while breastfeeding requires time and commitment of the mother, and a supportive employee lactation program may ease that transition of return to work. [Résumé de l'auteur]
