Breastfeeding Welcome Here Project
The Greater New Orleans Breastfeeding Awareness Coalition has relaunched the Breastfeeding Welcome Here project in partnership with the Louisiana Breastfeeding Coalition and local breastfeeding coalitions across the state!
The Greater New Orleans Breastfeeding Awareness Coalition (GNOBAC) invites businesses in the New Orleans area to sign a pledge to:
• Provide a comfortable, supportive environment for mothers to nurse in their establishment.
• Ensure that all staff members are aware of the project.
• Display the Breastfeeding Welcome Here signage in a highly visible place.
• Provide lactation accommodations (time and space other than a restroom) for their employees.
If you would like more information about the Breastfeeding Welcome Here project or are interested in supporting breastfeeding in your business, please email JMacias@gnobac.org.
Thank you for helping to make New Orleans a supportive community for moms and children!
Thank you to the businesses who have signed the pledge and proudly support breastfeeding!
