Federal laws have been strengthened to provide working mothers with legal rights while they are both pregnant and nursing.
Pregnant and nursing workers now have more rights thanks to recent revisions to federal law.
It is no longer allowed to discriminate against pregnant or recently-adopted employees.
They must also make suitable accommodations for staff who are expecting or nursing,
such as offering more regular breaks and separate areas for breastfeeding if necessary.
These changes will make it easier for women who are expecting or breastfeeding to continue working.
They are able to continue working without fear of facing prejudice because of their health, which can improve productivity and morale at work.
These new laws also ensure that mothers can nurse whenever they choose without feeling terrible about skipping work.
