Become a Texas Mother-Friendly Worksite!!

The Texas Mother Friendly Program offers free recognition to companies that support women to express breastmilk while at the workplace.

NET Health recently held the 2019 Texas Mother Friendly Luncheon that included employees of the Women’s Infants and Childrens (WIC) Clinics, as well as representatives of local Tyler companies who have implemented a mother-friendly space at their worksite, and who have already achieved Texas Mother Friendly recognition.

The Texas Mother-Friendly Worksite Program allows fulltime staff members to bring their breastfed infants to work until the age of 5 months.  To help the staff in their breastfeeding success, they receive supplies such as a nursing cover, an infant wrap and sling, and a nursing pillow. 

When the infant reaches 5 months of age and is no longer able to come to work, the staff member receives a hospital-grade breast pump and collection kit to encourage further breastfeeding success.  We encourage mothers to breastfeed and work at the same time to show support and to reveal the value we place on breastfeeding.

Some of the benefits that are already evident from this program include:

All of our NET Health WIC clinics are Texas Mother-Friendly Worksites.  This wonderful initiative supports our employees throughout their personal journeys as new mothers, and our WIC staff are able to present information about the program to your business.
