    Employer’s Perspective:

    Breastfeeding in other countries is part of the CRS mission, so supporting employees who breastfeed was never questioned. Benefits include maternity leave, 6 to 8 weeks for C/S births with up to 12 week FMLA. Flex time, telecommuting and part time are available. They have two fully equipped rooms that are available for employees as well as visitors.

    Employee’s Perspective:

    I am proud and grateful to be working at a place that supports working mothers so much. I, like many moms returning to work after maternity leave, was really struggling with the transition I would be facing. These rooms made my return so much easier and smoother and I think more companies should model their treatment of breastfeeding mothers after CRS.
