NASA Goddard Space Flight Center - Greenbelt, MD

Employer's Perspective:
It is important for us to support our lactating employees because we believe the supportive environment that Goddard fosters to families, can result in increased work commitment and productivity and improved family life. Breastfeeding has been demonstrated to benefit the health of both babies and moms, which ultimately may result in less time missed from work. With 14 rooms currently available and in use, our program provides the worksite resources nursing moms need to make their transition back to work less stressful. We think this is one reason we were rated in the top 5 Best Places to Work in the Federal Government according to OPM's 2011 Employee Viewpoint Survey.
