Mother Friendly Work Site
ShannonMedicalCenter joins a growing number of Texas businesses by becoming designated as a Texas Mother-Friendly Worksite. Mother-Friendly employers proactively support employees who choose to breastfeed their infants by providing time, space, and other supports to maintain breastfeeding after returning to work.
ShannonMedicalCenter and Shannon Women’s & Children’s Hospital, St. John’s Campus, the Surgery Center, the Main Clinic and the OB/GYN and Pediatrics clinics are designated as Mother-Friendly Worksites.
Created by the Texas Legislature in 1995 and administered by the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS), the Texas Mother-Friendly Worksite Program recognizes employers with written policies reflecting their support for their breastfeeding employees. Such policies provide work schedule flexibility to allow milk expression breaks; offer a private space, other than a bathroom, where the employee can pump or breastfeed; and ensure easy access to a clean water source and hygienic milk storage arrangements.
To be designated as a Texas Mother-Friendly Worksite, an employer must submit an application and qualifying written employee breastfeeding support policy to DSHS. For more information on the Texas Mother-Friendly Worksite Program, visit http://texasmotherfriendly.org.
