Queen’s Childcare Nursing Room Testimonial

"Having the facility to express milk for my baby has made the transition back to work much easier than I had initially anticipated. Queen’s Childcare staff were more than helpful in allowing me to access the room before I returned, which allayed all of my concerns around returning to work as a breastfeeding mother. The room is private, comfortable with a sofa and has a sink and fridge for milk storage, all of the facilities which are essential for expressing.  Having the room available to express in on the main site has ultimately meant that I can continue to breastfeed my son until a time of our choosing rather than being forced to stop early upon my return to work."
