Online: Breastfeeding and Returning to Work

Event date: 
Tuesday, October 12, 2021 - 10:00 to 12:00
Event Location: 
Via Zoom

Many mothers successfully combine work and breastfeeding. Our work environment continues to change, and as many more women return to the work force, many workplaces now have greater awareness of the importance of individual family responsibilities, and include this in workplace policies. Unfortunately breastfeeding still tends to be left up to the woman to discuss with her employer on an individual basis. Legislation exists in most states to guarantee that no employer may discriminate against individuals with family responsibilities.

Come and see how you can continue to breastfeed when you return to work and some ways of discussing it with your place of employment or with your child's carers.

We welcome everyone to come along - invite a friend. Your questions and contributions are welcome and help to reflect the range of parenting experiences. But please be respectful and thoughtful of the choices and situations of others as this can be a sensitive and sometimes challenging topic.

Want to talk about a different topic? Come along regardless - we tailor the conversation around those who attend.

A trained breastfeeding counsellor will lead a discussion but your questions and experiences will guide the discussion.
