Your employer must protect your health and safety while you are breastfeeding by making reasonable changes to your working conditions or hours of work, such as allowing you to work shorter shifts, having extra breaks to express milk, or avoiding night work or overnight stays.

This MU's sample policy for breastfeeding at work is designed for anyone working in the music sector and contains considerations for:

  • Lactation breaks
  • A private place to express milk
  • Breastfeeding equipment
  • Bringing baby to work
  • Flexible working
  • Education
  • Risk assessment
  • Milk storage
