The Details

What you need

These rooms have been specifically designed to help nursing mothers make the transition back to work by providing them with a private and comfortable setting. Each room offers a pleasant, carpeted sitting area, sink, refrigerator, anti-bacterial soap, and paper towels. The refrigerator is connected to the building’s emergency power system. In the event of a power outage, the temperature of the refrigerator will not change. A bulletin board is available for information sharing and schedule postings. The rooms can be locked from the inside to ensure privacy.

There is a mother's room located on:

  • 12th floor of the McCormack Building
  • 6th floor of the McCormack Building

Room policies and procedures

Please be courteous to others using the room. Scheduled usage must be strictly adhered to, to ensure maximum usage. Please do not share keys with employees in your office.  Each nursing mother will have her own key and schedule. Please return the key when you will no longer need the room.  All mothers nurse for varying lengths of time; thus we rely on the honor system for the return of keys.

  • Be sure your containers are clearly labeled before storing
  • Return at the end of the day and retrieve stored milk from the refrigerator.  The refrigerator is for storage of milk only.  Please do not store snacks or drinks.

How to schedule

  • Call (617) 727-4100
  • Make an initial appointment to schedule a block of time and receive a key
  • Employee ID must be presented before a key is provided
