Breastfeeding Support Service

The Breastfeeding Support Service offered by the Office of Affirmative Action and Diversities provides support and a welcoming assistance to mother workers/students so that they can keep breastfeeding after returning to their professional/academic activities at UFSC.

A breastfeeding support room was inaugurated on the Trindade Campus in 2019. The place is intended for the collection and storage of human milk, giving the mother-baby binomial the opportunity to continue breastfeeding or even allowing the donation to a human milk bank.

In addition to maintaining the breastfeeding room, the support service aims to mobilize and raise awareness of the academic community about the importance of breastfeeding.
