In brief: Moderately safe
Lorazepam has been looked at in a few studies and appears to cross into the breast milk in insignificant quantity.
(2.9% of maternal dose) there are cautions to observe for infant sedation but it is unllikely. See medications and mothers'milk, hale, 14ed.2010.

In brief: Ativan (lorazepam) & breast milk
Ativan (lorazepam) does go from mother to breast milk and can cause sedation in infants.
Using Ativan (lorazepam) regularly is not recommended with breastfeeding but may be used occasionally with care.
