Worksites for Wellness, Inc.

Supporting Breastfeeding Mothers at Work

We are a 501(c)(3) charitable organization co-founded in 2008 by Daria Luisi and Marti Copleman, two former employees of the New York City Department of Health & Mental Hygiene.

Our Mission

Assist nursing mothers in New York to continue breastfeeding (and not wean prematurely) when they return to work by informing employers and employees of the best practices for a breastfeeding friendly workplace.

By providing clean, sanitary, private spaces (not restrooms) for pumping breast milk, and leave time in which to do it, employers are in compliance with Federal (Reasonable Break Time for Nursing Mothers) and NY State (The Right of Nursing Mothers to Express Milk) labor laws.

By doing so, they increase their return on investment, retain valuable workers, reduce absenteeism, reduce insurance claims, improve morale, and have a healthier and happier workforce.
