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, non-bathroom space, flexible scheduling for break time and other basic support so that mothers may express and store breast milk for their babies. Join us for a Webinar to learn about earning your Texas Mother-Friendly Worksite designation.

Webinar agenda:
- Background on importance of supporting Breastfeeding in the workplace
-State and federal policy
-Developing your worksite policy (using tools on website/How to find help)
-Applying for Mother-Friendly designation
