Mothers: Know Your Rights!

In late 2009 I sponsored and pushed through Legislation (S1107) to establish a Breastfeeding Mothers’ Bill of Rights. All too often women are made to feel ashamed when they breastfeed, which can lead them to quit breastfeeding their babies prematurely.

My Breastfeeding Mother’s Bill of Rights is common-sense legislation that empowers and supports new mothers by providing them with the information they need prior to, and after they give birth so they can make the best decisions for their child and themselves.
