Why do I need to provide lactation space for my employees?

Those who are breastfeeding need to pump 2-4 times a day. An average pumping session takes 20 minutes. Providing a private, clean, and fully functional lactation space for breastfeeding workers is crucial to physical and mental health for new mothers, and significantly increases productivity.

A fully functional mothers room will provide private refrigeration and running water for comfortable and proper milk storage and sanitation of pumping equipment.

Why does your product include a portable sink? Can't breastfeeding workers use the kitchen/bathroom/shared sink we have already?

Using a communal or bathroom sink to clean pumping equipment more often feels vulnerable and unsanitary.
