Having a baby is a life-changing experience and returning after maternity leave can be a big step, especially if the employee is breastfeeding. Employees and employers have interlinked rights and responsibilities to help protect the health and safety of new mothers in the workplace. A clear understanding on both sides helps things move more smoothly.
Our New Mothers in the Workplace course forms part of our New and Expectant Mothers group of eLearning courses. The course outlines best practice regarding risk assessments and the steps employers must take to remove risks. Learners are then invited to apply their learning to their own situation to identify any further action that may be necessary.
What to Expect
By the end of this course, the learner will:
- Know when to provide and expect key information
- Be aware of key areas of potential risk in the workplace

Employees returning to work after maternity leave sometimes face challenges. It is a time of adjustment that can bring heightened risks to the mother's health and safety, and the employer has a duty of care to help her through this time. If she is breastfeeding when she returns, there are steps her employer must take to accommodate that.
