The space is sponsored and made possible by St. Peter's Health Partners.

The Daily Gazette published a story about new Lactation Lounges — private spaces to pump breast milk or nurse babies — at Proctors and the Palace Theatre. St. Peter’s Health Partners sponsored the lounges.

From the story:

The two performing arts centers on Monday announced the addition of lactation lounges — private spaces to pump breast milk or nurse babies — in conjunction with St. Peter’s Health Partners, which sponsored their creation.

SPHP sponsored the lounges as investments in community health, said Katherine Derosa, vice president of mission services and spiritual care. “By encouraging and supporting breastfeeding mothers, this program will make a positive impact on the long-term health of our community.”

Babies who are breastfed are shown to be at lower risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, asthma, diabetes and obesity, SPHP said.
