Employers and schools help New Mexico breastfeed

Supportive Workplaces and School Environments

Studies show a return in cost savings and productivity worth the investment:

  • Lower medical costs and health insurance claims
  • Reduced turnover rates (work). Lower drop out rates (school)
  • Fewer days missed to care for sick children

Breastfeeding and Returning to Work or School

The majority of parents with babies work outside the home and must return to work or school shortly after giving birth.

Helping breastfeeding employees and students succeed can be as simple as 1) providing flexible break time and 2) private space to pump at work and on campus.
