Lactation Pods | Prefabricated Lactation Rooms
Panel Built's Lactation Rooms Are Much More Than "Pods"
As an experienced Modular Building provider, Panel Built can deliver Lactation Pods that act as a fully functioning wellness space within your building. This is because Panel Built's modular structures are designed specifically to fit your facility's needs. We can deliver your lactation pod to your facility fully pre-assembled, ready for use, or the structure can be delivered 'knock-down' to be easily assembled on site. By providing a structure that better fits into the surrounding area, Panel Built's lactation rooms more discrete and can better blend into the existing environment.
However, Panel Built can also deliver a similar Lactation 'Pod' design with our pre-assembled buildings. The rooms are highly portable, able to be conveniently moved whenever needed. Plus, these rooms are pre-wired for electrical, only needing to be hooked into a power source when put in place.
What Are Lactation Pods
Lactation pods are specially designed private spaces in various public and private venues to support breastfeeding mothers. These pods offer a comfortable space for moms to nurse their infants or use a breast pump in peace and privacy. Typically, lactation pods are equipped with comfortable benches and other amenities to ensure a relaxing experience. They address the need for access to adequate space for breastfeeding, away from public spaces or unhygienic restrooms. The growing presence of these pods in the United States highlights a societal effort to prioritize the well-being of both new mothers and infants.
Where Can Lactation Pods Be Installed?
Lactation pods can be installed in a variety of buildings to accommodate the needs of nursing mothers. In corporate offices, these freestanding lactation pods provide breastfeeding employees a private room to pump breast milk during break times. Educational institutions, like colleges and universities, incorporate these spaces to support student and staff mothers. Public facilities such as airports, stadiums, and malls have also begun to recognize the importance of a dedicated lactation space, opting to install these pods for the convenience of their patrons.
Additionally, the latest news in lactation legislation is the Fair Labor Standards Act's PUMP Act. This law mandates employers to provide reasonable break time and private space, other than a bathroom, for nursing mothers to pump breast milk. Lactation pods offer an efficient and compliant solution for businesses. Overall, the aim is to create an environment where breastfeeding mothers feel supported and can manage their lactation needs without compromise.

By fabricating your new lactation pods in one of our specialized modular construction facilities, Panel Built is able to deliver your building in a fraction of the time of stick-built alternatives, making it a cost-effective solution. One of the primary advantages of utilizing a modular solution is the minimal amount of disruption at the project site. With the majority of these rooms being installed in commercial offices and public settings, using our easy and convenient modular system allows for seamless integration into your existing space. With our pre-assembled and pre-wired solution, the new pod simply needs to be off-loaded from the truck, transported to its final location, anchored into place, and connected to a power source. Then your building is ready for operation!
Being a new mom is difficult enough, the least employers and businesses can do is provide a comfortable space for their lactation needs.
