BREAKING NEWS! Congress just passed the strongest lactation workplace support legislation ever. The PUMP Act expands protections for breastfeeding, chestfeeding, and lactating parents. Right now, four out of five U.S. mothers start out breastfeeding, but less than half are still breastfeeding at six months postpartum. One of the main causes for the drop-off in breastfeeding rates is the lack of break time and a private place to pump in the workplace. The PUMP Act closes the gap in the law and expands protections for all lactating parents who work outside of the home.#PUMPAct #breastfeeding #chestfeeding #IPumpedHere #BreastfeedingisBipartisan ...

Reach out to your representative today! Thanks for MomsRising.org for facilitating your call!!Join the Nationwide Call-In Day for the PUMP for Nursing Mothers Act! To call, text PUMP to 747464 (provided by MomsRising.org) to be connected with your congresswoman or congressman in the U.S. House of Representatives. Call Script: Hello, my name is [________]. I live in [city, state, zip code] and am a constituent of Representative [name]. I'm calling to urge [him/her/them] to vote yes in support of House Bill 3110, the PUMP for Nursing Mothers Act. This bill will cover 9 million women of childbearing age who don't currently have protections that would give them time and a private space to pump breast milk at work. This is wrong and must be fixed. Passage of the PUMP Act would make a world of difference for families and I hope you'll vote yes when it comes to the floor this week. #PUMPAct #BreastfeedingIsBipartisan ... See MoreSee Less
