WRGB Channel 6 aired a story on the new Lactation Lounges at Proctors in Schenectady and the Palace Theatre in Albany, which offer nursing mothers a private, comfortable space to breastfeed or pump.
Sponsored and made possible by St. Peter’s Health Partners, the Lactation Lounges will be available during business hours for employees and during show hours for patrons.
From the story:
Proctors and the Palace Theater are unveiling a new way to make breastfeeding mothers feel more comfortable.
They’ve created Lactation Lounges which are private, comfortable rooms, available to mothers who need to breast feed or pump.
The Lactation Lounges are sponsored by St. Peter’s Health Partners. They say long-term studies show there are multiple health benefits of breastfeeding, for mom and baby, including giving mothers time to relax and bond with their child.
