Canberra Mothercraft Society,

QEII renew accreditation as a Breastfeeding Friendly Workplace

We have recently renewed our accreditation from the Australian Breastfeeding Association as a Breastfeeding Friendly Workplace. This accreditation is really important to our organisations family friendly ethos and our commitment to supporting working mothers and the health and well-being of their babies.

The accreditation acknowledges our compliance with the key elements of support required, including:

  • a private, comfortable space to breastfeed or express breast milk;
  • time during the working day to breastfeed or express; and
  • support from employer and colleagues.

We are proud of this accreditation and look forward to continuing to support our breastfeeding staff members to maintain breastfeeding while at work.

 

We wish to acknowledge the Ngunnawal people as the traditional owners and custodians of the land on which CMS and its services at QEII are located, and their Elders past and present.
