This broadcast will introduce the address the role that a paid maternity leave policy would play in encouraging and supporting women’s ability to breastfeed their children. Speakers will review current and historical data related to gender, motherhood, and employment status as it relates to breastfeeding trends and will explore the ways in which these dynamics work together to impact the initiation and duration of breastfeeding. Speakers will also present data regarding maternity leave policies both in the United States as well as other nations and the corresponding breastfeeding trends, with an exploration of how our maternity leave policies now and in the future will impact breastfeeding efforts. Additionally, speakers will explore the role of coalition building, using examples and lessons learned, to illustrate how working from the ground up is an effective way to enact change.
As a result of viewing this broadcast, participants will be able to:
- Describe the relationship between employment status and breastfeeding initiation
- Explain how paid maternity leave is a public health issue
- List three key components to effective coalition building
