School & Workplace Accommodations for Breastfeeding Mothers

For the entire month of August WIC will be offering in-house workshops that focus on school or workplace accommodations for breastfeeding mothers. This workshop will give you the tools and information needed to make your transition back to school or work successful, including: how to speak to your employer about your right to pump while at work, how to develop a pumping schedule that maintains your milk supply, and how to properly pump and store breastmilk.
