UNITED STATES BREASTFEEDING COMMITTEE
STATEMENT ON LACTATION ACCOMMODATIONS IN THE WORKPLACE
The United Stated Breastfeeding Committee (USBC) affirms that conditions in the workplace
have a substantial effect on breastfeeding duration. Three out of four U.S. mothers initiate
breastfeeding,1 and more than half of mothers participate in the labor force before their children
turn one year old.2 A supportive workplace plays a central role in enabling women to breastfeed,3
but current breastfeeding rates indicate that the lack of support in the workplace is a significant
barrier to breastfeeding for many working mothers.4″
