Need help offering breastfeeding support or starting a corporate lactation support program?
Our reputable consultants have the expertise that your company needs.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than half of American women with babies under the age of one were working mothers in 2009, and more than 60% of those women worked more than 35 hours per week.
This high percentage of women going back to work after having a baby would generally be impressive, however, working mothers are less likely to breastfeed their babies, and those who do - breastfeed for a shorter length of time than non-working moms.
If more women received on-the-job support that made it easier for them to express milk during working hours without negatively impacting their jobs, more of those working moms may choose to breastfeed.
What is in it for the company? Studies have shown that breastfed babies get sick less often, and healthier babies lead to lower rates of absenteeism and reduced expenditures for your company health insurance program.
