Breastfeeding in the Workplace

The first days back to work can be a challenge, but you can make you and your baby’s transition easier by following a few easy steps such as preparing during pregnancy, taking a practice day, and starting with a short work week.

For details and more tips, download NCBC’s handouts here:

There are also laws protecting the right to express milk during the workday. Read more about this on our Breastfeeding Laws and Regulations page.

For businesses, NCBC and the NC Division of Public Health created a planning and resource guide for employers who want to support their breastfeeding employees and customers. See the toolkit here.
