About

The Louisiana Workplace Breastfeeding Support Program:

  • Seeks to inform employers in New Orleans about the federal law that supports breastfeeding employees.
  • Freely assists employers in complying with the law by providing them with information and tools to establish workplace lactation programs.

We provide any of the following:

  • Materials and equipment to put into a lactation space or referrals for where to get equipment
  • Guidance on how to market and easily evaluate a lactation program
