Heart Health: New “Comfort zone” at El Paso Museum of History

EL PASO, Texas (KVIA)- In collaboration with the American Heart Association, the El Paso Museum of History created it’s REACH program to help develop the worksite policy and purchase supplies for the “Comfort Zone.”

The new space, which the Museum calls “The Comfort Zone,” will offer a private space for employees and visitors to pump or breastfeed and for others with sensory issues to take a break in a relaxing environment.

The Museum will offer breastfeeding individuals a private space, other than a restroom, where they can pump or breastfeed; a nursing station and family-friendly space for relaxation; toys for young children; and ensure easy access to milk storage.

Visitors can ask the Museum’s front desk attendant for more information.

Organizations who are interested in adopting a mother-friendly policy should contact the American Heart Association Reach program to receive guidance and assistance.
