WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Explore best practices for implementing a private breastfeeding space at your organization, and how doing so will be rewarding to your bottom line by attending this webinar.



It’s no secret that being a mother is tough, and being a mother who works is even tougher. One of the most-pressing challenges of becoming a new working mom is being able to juggle both work responsibilities and taking care of a newborn child.

Not only is this a stressful time for new moms, but when it's time for them to return to work, privacy to express breast milk becomes another new stressor. One way to help workers overcome this additional stress is to provide a private space—other than a restroom, that is protected from view and free from any intrusion that may come from coworkers and/or the public—that can be used by an employee to express breast milk.

Although federal law requires employers to provide accommodations for an employee to express breast milk for her nursing child, there are still some unanswered questions as to how employers go about providing this time and the appropriate space in the workplace.

Join this webinar presented by Michele Brott, as she provides some best practices for implementing a breastfeeding space at your organization, and how doing so will be rewarding to your bottom line.

Learning Objectives:

  • Provide information about best practices for implementing pregnancy/breastfeeding accommodation policies in the workplace.
  • Show employers how they can reap benefits now by taking simple steps to become a breastfeeding-friendly workplace.
  • Explain the most important steps employers can take to allow breastfeeding mothers to take breaks when necessary to express milk and creating an appropriate private place for them to do so.
