Johns Hopkins East Baltimore Medical Campus has three rooms, each in a different building, devoted to pumping. Hospital-grade pumps are available in each room. They received a Gold Award for Lactation Support. Their largest room is in the main hospital, and is in use around-the-clock. Even Parduba, an RN in Radiology is shown making using the room and its hospital-grade pump to provide milk for her infant daughter at home. Mothers who work on campus also have access to breastfeeding support groups, lactation consultants and on-site childcare. Some also have flexible work schedules. Julie Murphy, RN, BSN, IBCLC, coordinator of the lactation program at Johns Hopkins East Baltimore Medical Campus is pictured with Maryland Breastfeeding Coalition’s Dr. Dana Silver.
