Breastfeeding has enormous health benefits for both mother and baby and, despite the benefits, many breastfeeding moms stop nursing when they return from their maternity leave. Either their commute or work schedule are not conducive to pumping, or there is a general lack of awareness or support in the workplace. According to research from Unum, a supplemental workplace insurance provider, 47% of new moms in the U.S. cite breastfeeding as one of the biggest challenges of returning to work after birth.
This is why Acelleron developed an employer benefit program to support breastfeeding and pumping employees, whether they are in the workplace or working from home. We remove workplace barriers for breastfeeding moms by providing breastfeeding equipment, supplies, and milk-boosting snacks. Pump@Work is a low-cost, high-value lactation room service that seeks to increase breastfeeding rates when moms return to work.
