King County provides private rooms for employees to rest and for new mothers who wish to continue breastfeeding after returning to work, according to the King County Lactation Accommodation Policy.

Lactation rooms are private (if the room has windows, drapes or blinds are provided), secure (lockable from the inside), accommodating (contain comfortable seating, a table, and power outlets) and reasonably close to the employee’s work area.

When possible, lactation rooms will also be near a sink with hot water and soap (for hand washing and cleaning of equipment) and a refrigerator for storage of expressed breast milk.
