MURCIA wants to create more mother-friendly working environments.
The Ministry of Health wants to have the collaboration of women entrepreneurs to encourage breastfeeding, and has asked for their support to create specific breastfeeding spaces in the workplace so the initiative can be extended to more companies.
The topic was discussed by the Health minister Encarna Guillen, with the president of the Organisation of Business and Professional Women of the Region of Murcia, Manuela Marin.
Guillen emphasised the importance of seeking avenues to enable working mothers to have space for breastfeeding. “We must do more to have a supportive environment, to ensure the balance and health of the baby and mother.”
