Champlain Receives Breastfeeding-Friendly Certificate

by Julia – re-posted from the People Center Blog

Champlain College recently joined other Vermont businesses in supporting women who breastfeed. These collective actions have added up to improved health and reduced risk of chronic disease for Vermont children and families.

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that babies breastfeed for at least one year, but this can be a challenge for a working mother as she transitions from home to the workplace. These supportive policies help women succeed in giving their babies a healthy start in life.

Champlain was presented with a Breastfeeding-Friendly Employer certificate in appreciation for our investment in the health of Vermont families.
