Breastfeeding Friendly Employer List (1997-2013)

This project was discontinued in October 2013. We initiated the program before laws were enacted requiring workplace support for breastfeeding mothers. Now working breastfeeding mothers have the protection of both federal and state laws. The employer packet containing a sample policy and other guidance is still available for download.

The following organizations received the "Breastfeeding Mother Friendly Employer" designation from the Oregon Health Authority during the years that this project was in operation.  If you have questions, call 971-673-0040 or e-mail robin.l.moulton@state.or.us.
