Develop Your Policy
A lactation support policy shapes the culture and attitudes within your organization and reflects a commitment to improving employee well-being.
Your policy should clearly state what your employees can expect from your organization and what your organization expects from them.
The following components should all be covered in your employee worksite lactation support policy. A strong policy is brief and broad—it should be supported by clear procedures that provide specific and clarifying details. Too many details can weaken the overall policy by limiting its scope.
Find more information about policy elements, laws related to worksite support, policy templates, and sample policies in our Policy Development Guide.
After writing your lactation support policy, consider applying for TMFW designation, or reach out to our team at TexasMotherFriendlyWorksite@dshs.texas.gov for support. We are happy to review your policy and offer feedback!
