Nursing Mothers

Congratulations on becoming a parent! We know you’ve got lots to juggle, so we wanted to give you easy-access to the key information you need.

On returning to University as a nursing mum, you’ll have a meeting with a member of your University staff to conduct a risk assessment for your studies and to learn where our facilities are on site.

All three of the Universities in Medway have facilities for private breastfeeding, baby changing and secure milk storage.

There are areas of the Campus with restricted access to children for health and safety reasons, so if you do need to bring children on site for any reason, please check this out before you arrive. Children cannot be left unattended in any area of the Campus. Any areas that are open to children are also breastfeeding friendly, so there is no requirement to use the private spaces. We can help to make you comfortable in the Student Hub social space opposite reception, please feel free to come and say hello.

Expectant mothers are also encouraged to ask for access to the First Aid rooms for a quiet rest if required.
