We know the arrival of COVID-19 has brought new challenges to employers who are working to protect employees while continuing to operate their businesses and serve their clients as best they can.

In this new post-COVID world, we also know that employees are expecting more of their employers and HR teams, and that means ensuring workers feel they can confidently return to a clean and sanitized work space. This may be especially important for breastfeeding employees who will be pumping at work, and seeking extra reassurance that they can continue to provide breast milk to their baby.


We at Medela and Mamava want to ensure you have the best information on how to prepare for pumping practices in our new circumstances, so we have created these tools to provide guidance. Please explore the resources below, and don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions you have.
