The Breastfeeding Friendly Workplace (BFW) program is an initiative of the not-for-profit Australian Breastfeeding Association.
BFW aims to remove the workplace as a barrier to breastfeeding by creating work environments with the space, time and supportive culture necessary to support breastfeeding employees. An increasing number of women return to work within the first year of their baby’s life.
