New Mexico’s State Capitol is now offering a private place for mothers to breastfeed and pump breastmilk.

The new nursing lounge on the ground level of the Roundhouse near the west entrance has two private stations, and is available to legislators, staff and visitors. 

House leadership says it’s intended to create a more inclusive environment, following in the footsteps of other state legislatures around the country.
