Mother-Friendly Worksite

Outreach Partner Toolkit

We welcome the support of individuals and health-related groups as community outreach partners in raising awareness about the importance of breastfeeding and the benefits of worksite lactation support.

How You Can Help

You can use your knowledge of your organization or local community to identify ways to engage employers in educating champions within these organizations. Goals for outreach efforts are to:

  • Raise awareness of workplace breastfeeding barriers and ways they affect your community.
  • Demonstrate how lactation support programs help breastfeeding employees achieve their breastfeeding goals, positively impact public health, and benefit employer' bottom lines.
  • Share information about worksite lactation support resources, such as the Texas department of State Health Services Texas Mother-Friendly Worksite program and designation.

We have created several tools to help you serve as an outreach partner on behalf of your organization. Information can be shared with key groups and individuals in the community via formal presentations, meetings with stakeholders, one-on-one conversations, or through a simple phone call.

Thank you for supporting a healthier Texas.
