Mothers' Room

Learn about The Mothers' Room at FNCE® through a guided video tour by PHCNPG member Phyllis Crowley, MS, RD, IBCLC!
 

Since 1991, The Mothers' Room has been available to breastfeeding women attending the Food and Nutrition Conference & ExpoTM (FNCE®), as well as Academy staff, presenters, speakers, and women who work at the Expo. In the convention center, a room is specially prepared to accommodate the breastfeeding woman and her infant. The room is quiet with private spaces available for breastfeeding or pumping. Refrigerated and freezer storage is available to mothers. This service is a collaborative effort of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and the Public Health/Community Nutrition Practice Group working with the Women's Health Practice Group, the Pediatric Nutrition Practice Group, and the Academy affiliate where FNCE® takes place. Members of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietitics, including student members through the FNCE® Student Host Program, volunteer to staff the Mothers' Room throughout FNCE®.
