World Breastfeeding Week

World breastfeeding week

An example of breastfeeding in the workplace can be that an employee may need to express milk, therefore the employer should provide a private, clean and warm room for this to be done.

Furthermore, the expressed milk will have to be stored correctly and the equipment used (such as pumps and bottles) must be sterile, therefore employers should provide facilities for hygiene and storage.

It is crucial that we support and spread more awareness for breastfeeding, as no one should feel uncomfortable or lack the facilities to fulfil a natural and important process, especially in the workplace.

This week is World Breastfeeding Week, which started back in 1992 in order to spread more public awareness and support for breastfeeding. It now acts as a campaign to make sure employers, governments and trade unions do more to support those who breastfeed in the workplace.
