Anne has been a LLL Leader with our Madison Multiples group for over 25 years! She’s a walking encyclopedia of breastfeeding and is an incredible resource for local mothers and breastfeeding helpers. Thank you so much, Anne, for all that you do to protect and promote breastfeeding.
Now, on to one of the projects that Anne and other volunteers with BCSCW are working on…collecting the locations of public spaces where mothers can go to pump.
Many mothers have mobile jobs and no work base (think police officers, postal carriers, delivery drivers, etc.). If you know of a public space that is available to mothers in need of a place to pump, please go to this link to send BCSCW a message. Thank you!
