Breastfeeding Support - Karen Kurtz, IBCLC

Lactation Support in the Workplace

Why provide Lactation Support as an Employee Benefit?

These are just some of the reasons companies have found to offer lactation support to their employees.

The new health care legislation requires:

Employers with 50 or more employees to provide a nursing mother with “a reasonable break time” to express breast milk each time the employee needs to express milk for up to a year after her child’s birth. In addition, the provision requires employers to provide a place other than a bathroom that is private where the employee may express milk. The place must be “shielded from view” and “free from intrusion from coworkers and the public.” Although the Act does not define what a “reasonable” break time period is, it does indicate that an employee does not have to be paid for the time.

We can help you comply with this legislation.


The Federal Government has Developed a Program - "The Business Case for Breastfeeding" to address this important national health and economic concern.
