Mothers are more successful with breastfeeding when they live and work in supportive communities. The Michigan Breastfeeding Network (MIBFN) wishes to recognize Michigan employers that provide workplace support to breastfeeding employees through our Michigan Breastfeeding-Friendly Workplace Awards.

In order to qualify for a Workplace Award, employers must provide flexible breaks and a private, secure area for employees to express milk in accordance with the Break Time for Nursing Mothers law.

Award level will be determined by the following criteria based on the checklist found on the next page:

Please note that we process applications monthly. Thanks for all you do to support breastfeeding families in Michigan!

The Michigan Breastfeeding-Friendly Workplace Awards are a component of the Michigan Breastfeeding Network’s “MI Breastfeeding-Friendly Businesses Project,” a worksite lactation support initiative funded by the Cardiovascular Health, Nutrition and Physical Activity Section at the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS). The project is intended to increase the number of Michigan businesses able to assess their compliance with the federal breastfeeding accommodation law.
