Texas Mother Friendly Worksites

What are Mother-Friendly Worksites?

Mother-Friendly Worksites are businesses that proactively support employees who choose to breastfeed their infants. Creating and implementing a Mother-Friendly policy is both simple and inexpensive. The most basic Mother-Friendly policies need only provide a private space, flexible scheduling for break time and other basic support so that mothers may express and store breastmilk for their babies. A location is not required at all times, simply a plan in action should it be needed at any time.

“It doesn’t have to be anything fancy. We at Methodist Children’s converted a closet into an employee pump room. It’s not expensive.”

Geri Collins, Nursing Director
