We can Help

The Breastfeeding Coalition of El Dorado County can provide, at no cost,
an electric breast pump for you to use at work. For more information, please call:

Cindy Gaffney (530) 333-1917 ext. 241 (Western Slope)
Patty Murphy (530) 573-3049 (South Lake Tahoe)

Your employer, by law (AB 1025), must provide break time and a private room
for you to express your milk. Contact your supervisor to discuss arrangements that can
be made for you. For details about the law, visit the WIC Website.

Breastfeeding … the gift that lasts a lifetime!
