Supporting employees to breastfeed
To support and encourage our employees to breastfeed, we opened a new nursing room in our UK head office in Gatwick in August 2014. The opening coincided with International Breastfeeding Week. This is the second such room to open in the UK, after the opening of the breastfeeding room in York in 2012.
The new nursing room has a comfortable chair, a changing unit and a fridge for storing expressed milk. It’s designed for breastfeeding mums who have returned to work from maternity leave, and need a private room to express and store their milk. The room can also be used by mums who are on maternity leave and visiting the office, and for pregnant employees who need a rest during the day.
