Q. Let’s delve into the vital support working mothers need: Workplace breastfeeding assistance

Ans – Certainly! As a working mother in Novotel Kolkata Hotel & Residences and being part of RiiSE community globally, I deeply understand the importance of workplace support for breastfeeding. Having access to workplace breastfeeding assistance can make a significant difference in a mother’s ability to continue breastfeeding while returning to work. It’s crucial for workplaces to provide facilities such as designated lactation rooms or nursing areas where mothers can comfortably and privately express breast milk during their workday. Additionally, supportive policies that allow for flexible scheduling, breaks for pumping, and storage options for expressed milk are essential. We as employers can also play a key role in fostering a supportive environment by promoting awareness and understanding among co-workers about the needs of breastfeeding mothers. This can help create a culture of support and acceptance within the workplace. Overall, workplace breastfeeding assistance is not just a benefit for individual mothers; it’s an investment in the health and well-being of both mothers and their children. By prioritizing and implementing supportive measures, workplaces can empower working mothers to continue breastfeeding and thrive in both their professional and personal roles.
