In order to promote breastfeeding and its importance for health among working mothers and students, the Scientific Research Center of Yucatán (CICY) inaugurated its own Lactarium, a space in which the mothers of the CICY Community will be able to extract comfortably and safely their breast milk and conserve it for the later feeding of children.
At the inauguration, the director of the Center, Dra. Beatriz Xoconostle Cázares, highlighted the importance of the lactarios in the work centers, since they provide a favorable environment for working mothers to feed their children with breast milk. She also highlighted the efforts made by the CICY on gender equity and labor equality: “I am pleased to know that today we inaugurate the second Lactarium in all of Yucatan, a sign that the CICY is in favor of labor equality and recognition of the women’s work and their role as mothers. ”
