Lactation and Work: Ethically Guiding Clients Through Workplace Barriers
One of the most challenging experiences on a parent’s lactation journey is managing return to work. When lactating workers have access to both time and space for expressing breast milk, they are more likely to meet their breast/chestfeeding goals, yet many struggle to access these simple accommodations. Participants will gain an understanding of how workplace conditions influence lactation, become familiar with key legal principles protecting lactating parents in the workplace, and, learn strategies to ethically support their clients in reducing workplace barriers to continued lactation.
