The Lactation Design program consists of research and
outreach projects that will enable the Institute to
contribute design resources to facilitate improved
accommodations to support breastfeeding.
The Institute is hosting breastfeeding peer support events in the
metropolitan Atlanta area to provide resources for stay-at-home
and working breastfeeding mothers, as well as pregnant mothers
interested in breastfeeding. Funding has been provided by the
March of Dimes of GA Community Award. Please visit
www.PowerfulPetals.org for more information.

design communities to develop resources for companies that wish
to provide lactation accommodations for their employees. For

We are currently fundraising for a research project that will
enable us to examine the impact of the physical environment on a
mother's decision to breastfeed in the hospital. The initial
research paper examining this topic was published in the Spring
2011 Issue of the
Health Environments Research & Design Journal.
