    Employer’s Perspective:

    Designating a room for nursing mothers is a small gesture that goes a long way. Staff feel supported by this room which in turn creates a better work environment, connects nursing mothers together, and supports our employees in providing the best for their growing babies. 

    Employee’s Perspective:

    Returning to work as a nursing mother can be intimidating but knowing that I was returning with the support of my agency and a designated lactation room helped with the transition. This support aided in mastering the work and home life balance which ultimately results in a dedicated employee and happy mom! 

    Site Visitor’s Perspective:

    St. Mary’s County Department of Social Services, these ladies are GREAT!! They were really proud of their room.  It was very cozy.  They even had help from some of the work release inmates to help move stuff around and decorate.
