Nursing Mother Support Resources

Supporting breastfeeding Makes good business sense!

Mothers who choose to breastfeed are doing a world of good for their baby AND their business.

  • Breastfed babies are healthier! They have fewer infections and illnesses, even if they are in daycare.
  • Mothers who breastfeed are healthier. Their risk of breast cancer and osteoporosis is lower, and they recover from pregnancy and childbirth faster.
  • Because mothers and babies are healthier, company healthcare costs are significantly lower!
  • Healthier babies means mothers and fathers have to use fewer sick leaves to care for sick infants.

US Department of Health and Human Services has compiled a Breastfeeding Support Toolkit you can use as you start a program, including:

  • Worksite Breastfeeding Support Policy
  • Sample Assessment Form
  • Timeline for Implementing a Lactation Support Program
  • Lactation Support Program Feedback Forms
  • Promotional Flyers
  • Promotional Table Tents
  • Drop-in Newsletter Communications
  • Resource Guide
  • Employer Spotlights
