You have rights as a breastfeeding working mom.
Have your rights been violated?
Do you know how remarkable YOUR choice is?
You’ve chosen to breastfeed your baby and to also continue to work and provide for your family. Do you know how remarkable this choice is? The dedication you pour into breastfeeding totals around 1,800 hours per year. This nearly rivals the commitment of a full-time job, which clocks in at 1,960 hours (that’s calculated with you taking a three-week vacation). What an awe-inspiring feat and a testament to your boundless love for your family and little one.
Research shows that breastfeeding reigns supreme when a mother is willing and able. There’s a 72% reduction in infant infections, coupled with a shield against breast and ovarian cancers for mothers. Yet, astonishingly, only 58% of global mothers initiate breastfeeding within that precious first-hour post-birth timeframe. Hats off, dear Mama, for dedicating yourself to this monumental journey.
The choice to breastfeed not only requires time and dedication but could also include many obstacles. There’s a myriad of issues that could pop up along the way, including, but not limited to, sleep deprivation, milk supply issues, plugged ducts, engorgement, and fungal infections. The least of your worries should be the workplace!
According to the CDC, The Providing Urgent Maternal Protections or “PUMP” Act is an extension of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and requires employers to support breastfeeding mothers by providing reasonable break time to express breast milk for one year following the birth of a child. It also requires the employer to provide a clean, private space that is not a bathroom to pump. You can read more about the guidelines for Breastfeeding and Returning to Your Workplace.
Does your employer allow you reasonable time to pump or breastfeed at work? Do you have a private, locked room to pump or breastfeed that is not a bathroom? If not, your former or current workplace falls short of these requirements, and YOU could be owed COMPENSATION!
