What employers need to know...


In 2010, Section 7 of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) was amended to require employers to provide basic accommodations, such as time and space, for breastfeeding mothers at work. 

Why Should Employers Support Nursing Mothers?
  • It is the right thing to do!
  • Decreased Time away from work related to maternal in infant illness
  • Increased Productivity
  • Increased Job satisfaction
  • Decreased turn over; More likely to return to work after maternity leave
  • Decrease in losses related to hiring and training
  Please visit womanshealth.gov for more information

    I can help with...
    • Creating an appropriate area for your employees to pump, utilizing your area and resources, after a site evaluation
    • Create a company-wide policy regarding milk expression at work 
    • Provide lactation education and consultation to your employees

    I would love to help you support breast feeding!
