SAH recognizes that breast milk is important for the healthy growth and development of infants and young children. We promote and support breastfeeding and the expression of breast milk by health care workers, learners, volunteers, patients and visitors. A Breastfeeding Room is available on level 2 between the 2 public washrooms (Room E2007). For those who prefer privacy, this area offers a space for breastfeeding, pumping and feeding. Baby change tables are also available in the adjacent public washrooms.
