Ybreast @Work: Revolutionary Corporate Lactation Program Helps Nursing Moms Return to the Workforce
One-day absences to care for sick children occur more than twice as often for mothers of formula-fed infants.
Drawing upon years of legal and lactation expertise, Ybreast @Work offers corporate policy reviews, management training, communication assistance between supervisors and employees, the design and setup of lactation spaces that include the provision of hospital-grade breastfeeding equipment, the development and management of transitional plans for the nursing mom’s return to work, and ongoing 24/7 breastfeeding support for employees.
Research finds that companies who implement corporate lactation programs experience profound and positive impacts on their bottom line. Just a few of these important dividends include lower turnover rates, earlier returns from maternity leave, health care savings, increases in employee morale, productivity and employer loyalty, positive public relations, and a decrease in legal liability. The insurance company CIGNA conducted a 2-year study of 343 employees who participated in their lactation support program, and found that the program resulted in an annual savings of $240,000 in health care expenses, 62% fewer prescriptions, and $60,000 savings in reduced absenteeism rates.
Ybreast offers professional, reliable, and individualized 24/7 breastfeeding support based upon cutting-edge scientific research. Founded by former Wall Street lawyer turned lactation guru Debi Yadegari, Ybreast brings moms a new type of concierge service: one that’s focused on getting nursing mothers the support they need where they need it – at home (Ybreast @Home), at work (Ybreast @Work), and on the go (Ybreast Travels).
