The Canterbury Breastfeeding Advocacy Service congratulates Anderson Lloyd, Christchurch, who have become the first New Zealand law firm to become a breastfeeding friendly workplace, and this happened just in time for World Breastfeeding Week 2017. Anderson Lloyd is committed to providing support for staff planning to combine breastfeeding with their working lives. Breastfeeding supportive businesses are more likely to retain their valuable and experienced staff, and enabling working women to breastfeed is a win-win situation that builds loyal employees, as well as supporting infant and mother health and wellbeing. Anderson Lloyd has a breastfeeding policy, resources for staff information, a comfortable and private room for women to breastfeed or express breast milk, and a fridge for breast milk storage. World Breastfeeding Week #WBW2017, which is coordinated worldwide by the World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action (WABA) calls on everyone to work together in partnership to support breastfeeding women. Anderson Lloyd is a great example of how this partnership can work.
