Gold level awarded August 7th, 2017


The Village of Brown Deer has created an environment that not only values the importance of breastfeeding but supports breastfeeding employees through their written policy, flexible break scheduling, and the accepting attitudes that are exhibited by both supervisors and staff. 

The Village of Brown Deer provides a private lactation room with comfortable seating for breastfeeding employees to relax while expressing milk and ample refrigeration space within close proximity of the room for proper milk storage. 

Additionally, pregnant employees (or spouses) are provided information on breastfeeding and returning to work while breastfeeding, and have access to a Certified Lactation Counselor.
