BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – New mothers will now have a place to nurse or pump breast milk at Brevard’s largest courthouse.

Located just outside courtroom 2-D, the “Nursing Room” will provide a private space for lactating mothers that is shielded from view and interruption from the public.

Chief Judge John M. Harris says he’s proud to offer a safe, comfortable space for nursing mothers and is grateful to the Brevard County Association for Women Lawyers for their generous support.

“The Brevard County Association for Women Lawyers furnished and decorated the room which will be especially useful for attorneys who often spend many hours at the courthouse,” said Judge Harris.

“However, the space is open to any courthouse visitor – whether an employee, juror, or member of the public.”

A sign posted in the courthouse will provide information to visitors about the space.

“It is our hope that this room will make nursing mothers feel welcome at our courthouse,” said Wendy Fisher, a member of the BCAWL and one of the attorneys responsible for the project.

In time, Chief Judge Harris would like to open similar rooms at other court facilities.
