Returning to work after having a child can be a big transition, especially if you are breastfeeding.
As a nursing parent, you’ll need break time and space for pumping breast milk at work, and possibly other changes or accommodations that will allow you to stay healthy and continue breastfeeding your baby while doing your job.
Our state-by-state guide “Talking to Your Boss About Your Pump”, created in partnership with WorkLife Law, helps you:
- make a plan to take care of your breastfeeding needs at work
- understand your legal protections under state laws and two new federal laws, the PUMP Act and Pregnant Workers Fairness Act
- get practical tips for how to talk to your boss about breastfeeding accommodations
If you have any questions about your breastfeeding rights, please call our national, free, confidential legal helpline at 1-833-NEED-ABB (1-833-633-3222).
