I am the new breastfeeding coordinator at the University of New Mexico and I am so excited to tell you all it is possible to be both a nursing mother and a college student! Check out what my program has to offer. I nursed my son for 3 years and have been on and off these boards for about 9 years.
And please PM me if you have any questions or need any help nursing and going back to school!

Very Nice. It makes all the difference when institutions are supportive.

I went to Robert Morris College in Springfield, Illinois. I had to start back up very soon after I had my soon to stay on cohort. (3 weeks). They were very supportive also. They didn't have a "women's room" or anything like that, but they set aside a conference room everyday for me and made sure that I had a quiet uninterrupted discreet place for me to pump every day.
