Returning To Work When You Are Breastfeeding

A video to assist you if you are considering returning to work.


Returning to work covers:

  • continuing to breastfeed when you go back to work
  • expressing and storing breast milk
  • talking to your employer about breastfeeding breaks and having a comfortable place to breastfeed
  • how early childhood centres can support breastfeeding
  • juggling work and home
  • taking baby to work with you
  • benefits to employers of supporting mums to continue to breastfeed

This video clip is based on a Breastfeeding NZ, Ministry of Health DVD that follows nine women on their breastfeeding journey. The DVD is distributed to mums and mums-to-be by their lead maternity carer. You can also view this and other video clips online at the Breastfeeding NZ YouTube channel.
