Formula Shortage Resources

We are here to support you in whatever way you need to feed your newborn. We understand that the shortage of available safe formula is stressful for families.
For information about national and local formula resources, formula use best practices, and if you choose to feed your child human milk, donor milk program options, and UCSF lactation service information, visit the resources page.

Monthly: Pumping & Returning to UCSF

UCSF Campus Life Services' Family Services is offering a new workshop.

Whether you are new to lactating and pumping or have previous experience, we encourage you to attend our small-group, expert-led monthly workshop.
Developed for UCSF employees/students, the workshop will guide you through various lactation topics and on-campus services, specifically for when you are ready to return to campus.

We recommend you attend this workshop 1-2 months before returning to work/school, but we welcome you at any point. Fillable materials and a reminder message will be sent out before the workshop. View dates & class information
