Mothers' Room  

The Mothers' Room at FNCE® provides breastfeeding mothers a private, comfortable place to breastfeed their infant or pump and store their milk while at the conference center. Bonnie Bradly led the efforts for this year's room which was staffed by numerous volunteers from PHCNPG, Womens Health DPG, registered dietitians, students through the Student Host Program.

 Our Mothers' Room this year was a great success! Take a look at the moments captured as FNCE members made great use of this valuable accomodation.
