Pregnancy & Parenting

Breastfeeding Coalition

Delta College strives to be a friendly environment for families and women who are nursing and breastfeeding. One way the college has done this is by joining the Midland County Breastfeeding Coalition and participating in its Family Friendly Places and Spaces Initiative.

By joining the coalition, Delta is saying that women who breastfeed on campus won't be asked to leave or told to stop. In addition, Delta College offers women a clean, comfortable and secure place on campus they can use for breastfeeding.
