The Utah Breastfeeding Coalition provides expert and free collaboration services with excellent materials from the Business Case for Breastfeeding. They describe the steps for creating a breastfeeding friendly worksite. More information on the Business Case is at

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office on Women’s Health (OWH) is creating an online searchable resource to showcase creative solutions for supporting employees who are nursing their babies. The resource will be available in Fall 2012.
To help populate the web-based resource, OWH is currently gathering success stories from businesses of all industry types over the next few weeks. They hope to identify workplaces willing to share their solutions for both the time and space requirements of the Federal nursing breaks law (which amends Section 7 of the Fair Labor Standards Act), and have created an online submission site at www.everymother.org/workplace to make it easy. On this site, employers willing to share their ideas can enter their contact information and answer a few questions about their support services. A member of the project team may follow up to learn more. All information will be kept strictly confidential and no identifying information will be made public without permission from the employer.
Special thanks to all the UBC members and supporters who worked together for the development and passage of this resolution.
Are you a breastfeeding mom and returning to work and school? By continuing to breastfeed, your baby will have less sick days and help you be more productive. Many employers and schools will provide a place for you to pump your milk for your baby. UBC can help if they need information about how to set up a pumping room (contact email@example.com or call 1-877-632-7975).
