Pumping & Returning to UCSF
Return with support and confidence!

Whether you are new to lactating and pumping or have previous experience, we encourage you to attend our small-group, expert-led monthly workshop. Developed for UCSF employees/students, the workshop will guide you through various lactation topics and on-campus services, specifically for when you are ready to return to campus.

Learn about UCSF lactation rooms, UCSF program support services, lactation accommodation policies, and onsite resources and supplies. In addition, discover practical tips and postpartum advice on transitioning to work, creating and maintaining a milk supply, pumping schedules, safe collecting/storing/transporting of human milk, flange sizing, pumps, pump settings, bottle feeding, and more.
