Nursing Mom Questions New Safety Feature on Lactation Room at Columbus State Community College
COLUMBUS (Tara Morgan) -- A nursing mom questions a new safety feature for the lactation room at Columbus State Community College.
Ashley Dunno says she pumps her breast milk two to three times a day in between classes at Columbus State.
Dunno says it was convenient until the college changed the lock to a deadbolt.
She says she's had to ask police to let her in which is not only an inconvenience but a violation of privacy.
"I don't think it's something I have to announce to people I'm an adult I'm not a ten year old," said Dunno.
A spokesman for Columbus State says the lock was changed to a deadbolt because people could use a credit card or coin to get in the room with the original lock.
Columbus State says nursing moms don't have to ask police to be let in that they just need to go to student services and exchange their I-D for a key.
