UOWD nursing room - Giving a hand to working mothers
Wednesday, 03 March, 2010
A brand new, purpose re-furbished Nursing Room was opened at the University of Wollongong in Dubai on 2 March. It is one of the several initiatives that UOWD has introduced in the recent past to become UAEs employer of choice- an employer that actively advocates and strives for a healthy work-life balance and encourages initiatives that support it. The UOWD nursing room facility has been setup to help staff combine the demands of returning to work after the birth of a child and to provide a facility for those who wish to continue nursing their child. The nursing room is located in 2nd Floor, Block 15 and is a private place where nursing mothers can pump their breast milk, store it safely while at work, and then take their milk home to their babies. The room is a private area with comfortable chairs, a fridge and a baby-changing unit. Mothers who wish to bring in their babies for breastfeeding at a convenient time during their work are free to do so. The facility is also available for spouses and/or students who want to come to the University and need to bring their children with them and require a place to nurse or change the child. Cecile de Scally- a well known Midwife and Educator in Dubai was the guest speaker at the opening and spoke on some of the services she will be offering to UOWD staff.
