Back to Work Mom (B2Wmom) Hero

Preparing to be a #B2Wmom

Fargo Cass Public Health is here to support moms and their decision to breastfeed. Many moms go back to work after having a baby so planning ahead for returning to work can help mothers continue to breastfeed.

This first thing we recommend is talking with your employer before baby is born about your options. Fargo Cass Public Health is also excited to support moms with the Back to Work Mom (#B2Wmom) program. We have numerous resources to help mothers as they plan to go back to work.
