Will I Be Given Support To Continue Breastfeeding On My Return To Work?

Yes, We aim to support and encourage mothers who wish to breastfeed after they return to work. If you wish to continue breastfeeding your child when you return to work you should arrange to meet your line manager to discuss the provisions required. This meeting will need to take place at least four weeks before you plan to return to discuss working arrangements, which will allow you to continue to breastfeed.

 As a result we may need to change your working pattern temporarily in order to support you and this should be discussed with your line manager prior to your return. Where practicable, time off during working hours will be provided to allow you to breastfeed if your baby is cared for nearby, or to express milk.

 Please refer to Breast Feeding Policy for more information.
