This program offers assistance to new mothers returning to workwho want to continue to breastfeed. Rooms and equipment are available for you to pump your breast milk in a clean, private, and quiet environment. It is available days, evenings, nights, andweekends, until you and your baby are ready to wean. McLeod provides a pump and an opportunity to join a working mother’s support group.
