• MACPM Endorses Bills that Support Breastfeeding

    by  • May 15, 2013 • Uncategorized

    MACPM has endorsed two important pieces of legislation designed to support women in breastfeeding their babies.   LD 777, “An Act To Protect Working Mothers Who Breast-feed” and LD 830, “An Act To Further Protect Pregnant Women under the Maine Human Rights Act” are currently being reviewed by the Maine Judiciary Committee.  MACPM has submitted a letter in support of both bills noting, “Mothers often cite the lack of privacy, time, and support at their work places as the reason they feel they can no longer continue to breastfeed.  Passage of LD 777 and LD 830 will put in place the protections that mothers need to be supported in making the best nutritional choice for their babies.”  You can encourage passage of these important bills by contacting your legislators.
