HHS: UMMC supports nursing mothers at work

LogoThe Medical Center has been included on a new Health and Human Services online resource that assists businesses in supporting breastfeeding women at work.

The HHS' Office on Women's Health offers the searchable database, "Supporting Nursing Moms at Work: Employer Solutions," which lists UMMC under its "Teaching Hospitals" heading. The website also proposes ways in which employers can comply with the Affordable Care Act's requirement to have accommodations for employees who are breastfeeding.

The OWH collaborated with the Society for Human Resource Management on the initiative to ensure that the information would be useful to organizations seeking to comply with the health-care law. To view the website, visit www.womenshealth.gov/breastfeeding-at-work.
