The South Carolina Pregnancy Accommodations Act was signed into law with bipartisan support in 2018 and is proceeded by the introduction of the South Carolina Lactation Support Act. This bill would require employers to make already existing spaces available to workers to use for expressing milk.
Join us in telling lawmakers to support and prioritize a woman’s ability to breastfeed in a sanitary and private workspace.
South Carolina ranks far lower than the national average of breastfed infants. Breastfeeding provides essential nutrition for infants, helps prevent disease and infection, and improves survival rates the first year of life. Breastfeeding can protect children against asthma, allergies, and bone loss later in life.
Let's stand together today and support the health and well-being of mothers in the workforce.
Thank you for supporting the SC Lactation Support Act.
We'll continue to keep you up-to-date on this and related bills.
