I've used the lactation room: It's n the 10th floor of Holyoke center. The first
time you use it, ask a security guard if they can show you where it is and get
the punchcode for the door. I believe the code is 15, but if you have a hungry
baby with you, you can check to be sure. The Harvard office of family just asks
that you call to notify them that you are using it and that number is posted
inside the room.

Quoting Christine Dianne Wenc <wenc at fas.harvard.edu>:

> A couple of other things--
> One, there are lactation roooms available at the Med School and on campus
> at Holyoke Center (I think--see the postings on the bulletin board in the
> pediatrics dept. in the Holyoke center.  There is also a lactation
> consultant available during limited hours.)  Ped office is 617-495-4171.
> They're busy but usually pretty nice.  (Though, in my experience, the docs
> & nurses who work there don't know a whole lot about breastfeeding, nor
> are they particularly supportive--they seem to advise stopping nursing
> for really very little reason, are not up on even research from 10 years
> ago, etc.  San Francisco this ain't.)
> Two, your spouse/parter CAN get access to Harvard facilities--they can get
> an ID for I think $20 which will let them use the library, MAC etc.  See the
> library web site, I think.
> More later, Christine
