Corporate Lactation Services
Breastfeeding success starts with educated support. Our classes and workshops assist healthcare providers and local businesses access the tools they need to help moms reach their goals. The Breastfeeding Success Company is here to help businesses help their employees to meet their breastfeeding goals.
Due to new federal and state laws supporting breastfeeding in the workplace, many businesses in the Austin area have implemented Corporate Lactation Programs as a service for employees with great success. (link to established programs). There are many advantages to providing this support for your employees as breastfeeding mothers are a valuable asset to workforce. In fact, because they are providing their babies with living antibodies in their milk they tend to miss less work, (1) it reduces healthcare costs, (2) employers experience reduced turnover and more company loyalty (3) and for every dollar spent on work-site lactation programs 3 dollars is saved (need reference).
It is undeniable that supporting breastfeeding is good for the mom, good for the baby, and good for business. New federal requirements to provide time and space for nursing mothers to be able to express milk for their babies is also making business owners aware of the need for support for their management team as well as their employees.
Our corporate lactation program prepares businesses large and small alike to be in compliance with federal and state lactation protection laws.
