Abstract

As a Women Infants and Children agency Intern, I had the opportunity to collaborate with Salinas Business Union Association to pilot local business owners into finding ways to becoming breastfeeding friendly. Owners were given an educational brochure regarding breastfeeding laws, lactation accommodation and creation of breastfeeding friendly environments for current and future mother employees as well as clients. A breastfeeding friendly logo was also created to be posted on businesses windows to show the community of Salinas their support of breastfeeding. The main goal of this project was to raise awareness about the importance and acceptance of breastfeeding, as well as increasing lactation accommodation in the workplace.
