Eight babies are born in the United States every second.
Their parents are your employees — at every level of your org chart.

When babies are on the way, many employers and parents assume that employer benefits will cover breastfeeding support needs pre- and post-birth. But most lactation care coverage doesn’t meet the legal requirements of the Affordable Care Act.  

Insufficient care is costly to families and workplaces:

Nearly 83% of parents said they found breastfeeding challenging.

Your employees are likely dealing with unforeseen obstacles like mastitis, low milk supply, latching issues, or postpartum depression or anxiety. Breastfeeding isn’t automatic. It’s a skill that must be learned.

Over 70% of parents agree that employers could do more to support them on their breastfeeding journey.

Only 59% of parents return to work after maternity leave, and the average turnover cost of losing a new parent as an employee is at least 50% of their annual salary.

It doesn’t have to be this way. Nearly 95% of employed mothers who had a lactation consultation through The Lactation Network returned to work following their maternity leave.
