Follow us on,

Every year, World Breastfeeding Week is celebrated from August 1-7, as an ode to motherhood, a beautiful journey filled with love and joy. But motherhood also comes with its unique set of challenges, especially for moms who are juggling their careers while caring for their infants. At BYJU’S, we understand the significance of providing a nurturing environment for our mom squad and believe in taking proactive steps in empowering our working mothers through a dedicated lactation room at our workplace.

This World Breastfeeding Week, we, at BYJU’S, celebrate the importance of our established lactation room and the incredible benefits it brings to the mothers in our organisation. By recognising the vital role that this space plays in supporting breastfeeding after returning to work, we aim to foster a culture that uplifts, cherishes, and stands by our working moms every step of the way.

Let’s honour the power of compassion, care, and empowerment, with our dedicated lactation room at BYJU’S. Together, we can create a workplace that supports the dreams of our working mums, while nurturing a stronger, more inclusive, and happier community for us all.

Understanding lactation rooms

A lactation room, also known as a nursing room or breastfeeding room, is a private, comfortable, and hygienic space to support breastfeeding mothers. These rooms are specifically designed to enable nursing mothers to express breast milk in a quiet environment. They are equipped with amenities, such as comfortable seating, a refrigerator for milk storage, and a power outlet for breast pumps.

Breastfeeding has numerous health benefits for both the mother and the baby. By providing a dedicated lactation room, BYJU’S demonstrates its commitment to the well-being of its nursing mothers, promoting a positive and supportive work environment.

What’s inside the lactation room at BYJU’S?

BYJU’s private lactation room is located on the 2nd floor of IBC Knowledge Park, Bangalore. Feel free to approach security or housekeeping for assistance in finding the room and make sure to book it in advance for your convenience. 

As you step into this exclusive sanctuary, you’ll find yourself in a private, cosy haven. We’ve decked it out with all the essentials to make nursing mothers’ breastfeeding journey smooth sailing.

Here’s what you need to know about the lactation room: 

Privacy and comfort 

The lactation room offers complete privacy, preventing interruptions or distractions. Comfortable seating, calming decor, and appropriate lighting create a serene and relaxing space.

Hygiene and safety 

High standards of cleanliness and hygiene are maintained in the lactation room. Cleaning supplies and regular cleaning protocols are established by the housekeeping staff. 


Comfy seating? Check! Refrigerator for milk storage? Absolutely! And, don’t worry, we’ve got a power outlet for every mother’s breast pump needs. The lactation room is equipped with a refrigerator for milk storage, a comfortable sofa, chairs, a table, a few magazines and a power outlet that ensures that mothers have all the necessary facilities at hand.

A mission of support 

Raise awareness

Managers and team leaders should proactively communicate the availability and location of lactation rooms to all BYJUites, especially new mothers. This can be done by sharing this blog and spreading the word about the availability of the lactation room. 


Offering flexible break times for nursing mothers can encourage regular and stress-free expression of breast milk.

Emotional support 

Managers and fellow BYJUites can play a significant role in supporting breastfeeding individuals by creating a positive atmosphere for new moms and fostering a culture of understanding and empathy.
