MomsRising supports breastfeeding moms in a variety of ways. In a series within our weekly #WellnessWed chats, we've raised awareness about the challenges moms face in meeting breastfeeding goals without access to paid family and medical leave. We also launched the #IPumpedHere campaign, raising awareness about the lack of adequate break time and accommodations for pumping moms, including the negative impact of not having paid family and medical leave. Our partners include Black Breastfeeding Week organizers, US Breastfeeding Council, midwives, lactation consultants, and many others.
