Provide access to breastfeeding facilities

Working mothers should be supported to continue breastfeeding in clean and comfortable breastfeeding facilities. Be mindful that the space should provide adequate privacy, but not feel locked away from the rest of the team. Make yourself aware of whether your workplace has a dedicated space where mothers can comfortably pump and store breast milk or breastfeed. Even if it is not affecting you, be their advocate and speak to those in charge to bring about change as required.
