Breastfeeding Friendly Workplaces


The Minnesota Department of Health recognizes workplaces that have demonstrated their commitment to supporting breastfeeding mothers by designating them as Breastfeeding Friendly Workplaces. PartnerSHIP 4 Health offers assistance to workplaces for the application process.  By becoming a Breastfeeding Friendly Workplace, your business is supporting healthy families, nursing mothers, and gives you an opportunity to promote your business to the community.

Workplaces that fulfill the criteria for Breastfeeding Friendly recognition will receive a printable electronic certificate, a digital logo for use on webpages or printed material, a sample media release and internal newsletter template. “Breastfeeding Friendly Recognized” window clings will be available for order. Workplaces that have demonstrated exceptional commitment to supporting and accommodating breastfeeding employees may be featured on the Minnesota Department of Health website.
