DOT is committed to providing its employees with the workplace flexibilities and resources necessary to maintain a healthy work life balance leading to improved employee productivity and engagement. As such nursing and lactating mothers are afforded the following accommodations per DOTs lactation room policy:
The availability of the lactation room at DOT made it easier for me to transition back to work after my daughter was born. Further, it has helped to lessen some of the challenge of continuing to breastfeed an older infant as a working mother. The lactation room is clean, conveniently located, and easy to access. DOT provides two private pumping stations in the lactation room in my building, each with a hospital grade pump, and a refrigerator. The pumping stations have comfortable chairs and desk space, making it easy to either relax or continue working. There is a bulletin board to post baby pictures in the lactation room and a ready supply of reading material, including parenting magazines and handouts on nutritional information and womens health. In addition, DOT Worklife Wellness staff are helpful and supportive regarding breastfeeding and pumping needs.
