Where to Pump Your Milk at the Hospital 

Electric breast pumps are available at a variety of locations throughout The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, including private rooms and on every inpatient unit.

All of the rooms are private, have a comfortable chair, a Medela Symphony® electric pump, pump roomand sanitary wipes for cleaning the pump. Breast milk storage bottles, labels, and a sink with soap to clean your pumping kit are also included in each room.

Pump rooms are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week on a first-come-first-served basis. No keys or sign-up are required. Please keep the rooms clean for the others who will use them after you.

In addition to the private rooms, every inpatient unit also has a portable electric breast pump that you can use at your baby’s bedside. You may need to share with other pumping mothers on the floor.
