Call on Congress to Support Paid Leave
The United States is one of the only countries without a national paid family and medical leave program. As a result, nearly 1 in 4 mothers return to work just 2 weeks after giving birth. Research clearly shows that access to paid leave makes a world of difference for lactating parents and their families, but only a small portion of workers in the United States have access to paid leave. 

Congress has a chance right now to create a comprehensive and inclusive national paid family and medical leave program by passing the Family and Medical Insurance Leave (FAMILY) Act. Let's raise our voices together to educate Congress on how a national paid leave program can support breastfeeding, improve health outcomes, and make a difference for American families.
