Lactation Center

The Wellness Hub supports a mother’s choice to breastfeed her baby while pursuing her graduate or professional degree. There are currently seven Lactation Centers on the University of Maryland, Baltimore campus. Any nursing mother who is a UMB affiliate (faculty, staff, student, or their breastfeeding spouse/domestic partner) can use this service offered by the Wellness Hub. 


The University of Maryland Medical Center offers a Warm Line 24 hours a day, seven days a week for any and all breastfeeding questions. The Warm Line is available at 410-328-3512. Prospective users of the lactation rooms should register before contacting the administrative liaisons for each room. Please contact lactation@umaryland.edu for further information about the Maternal Support Services offered on campus.
