I believe that it is important to publicize the existence of the lactation room, if only to remind conference organizers that this is a very real need. My hope is that a lactation room will become a standard accommodation at Jewish and secular conferences – as well as airports, malls, and other public spaces. Until that happens, though, it is important for working moms who require the use of a lactation room to advocate for themselves and request one ahead of time.
