Breastfeeding Friendly Businesses

Is Your Business Breastfeeding Friendly?

The Breastfeeding Friendly Business label aims to improve the health of breastfeeding people and babies in Spartanburg. By labeling businesses as breastfeeding-friendly, we are letting breastfeeding families in the community know that they are welcome to breastfeed their babies at those businesses without fear of judgment or harassment. This effort hopes to make it easier for breastfeeding people in Spartanburg to provide their babies with the best nutrition possible while being able to go about their daily lives. In addition, we hope to decrease the stigmatization of breastfeeding to create a healthier community.

To see if your business qualifies as a Breastfeeding Friendly Business, answer this question:

Do you provide a welcoming, safe, clean space for mothers to breastfeed their babies? This could include public spaces such as a waiting room, dining area, or retail space, but it does not have bathrooms. No particular room or chair is needed, but it is always appreciated.

If you can answer yes to this question, you qualify as being a Breastfeeding Friendly Business! To be included as a breastfeeding-friendly business, please get in touch with Amber Pendergraph-Leak at

The Breastfeeding Friendly Business project is an initiative of BirthMatters, the Mary Black Foundation, and the Road to better Health initiative.
