A4 Poster - Your support makes a difference to your colleagues

As part of a BFW accredited organisation's communication plan, all employees at accredited organisations should be aware of the support available, and subsequently realise that they play a part in creating a supportive workplace.

This poster is suitable for display throughout your organisation, in lunchrooms and other common areas.

This poster contains the following copy:

This workplace is an accredited Breastfeeding Friendly Workplace

Your support makes a difference to your colleagues

Balancing work commitments with a baby's needs is a challenge. Support and understanding from her manager and work colleagues can make a real difference to a mother's successful return to work after maternity leave.

If someone in your team is currently combining breastfeeding and work commitments, please keep in mind:

  • She may need to take breaks during the day to express milk or feed her baby
  • She may require some flexibility around her work
  • Combining work and breastfeeding can be stressful. Understanding from colleagues goes a long way.

This is a short-term commitment on the part of your colleague, however it has long term benefits to both mother, baby and your organisation. She will appreciate your support
