Worksite Collaborations

MilkWorks values working with employers to enhance their breastfeeding support and breast pump resource list. We are deeply passionate about families in our community and we have much to offer both new and seasoned families, including: 

Employer Assistance
When breastfeeding is supported in the workplace, employees are more productive, healthcare costs are lower, there is decreased absenteeism and decreased staff turnover. MilkWorks understands the importance of supporting breastfeeding in the workplace and we are here to help you navigate the process and be prepared! We offer:

  • Worksite Lactation Room/HR Policy Consultations
  • Breast pump coverage information & insurance filing
  • Medela Symphony breast pump rental for onsite employee use
  • Return to Work class (offered 1-2 times monthly at each MilkWorks location)

Personal Use Pump at Hospitals

MilkWorks collaborates with Nebraska MedicineFremont Health, Gothenburg Health, and Beatrice Community Hospital & Medical Center to provide Medela Pump In Style Advanced breast pumps* to their patients after delivery. Patients are able to obtain a high quality breast pump along with full instruction on how to most effectively use it. This is especially helpful to moms with language and/or transportation barriers. MilkWorks offers Medela Symphony rental breast pumps when there is a medical need. 

*MilkWorks is in-network with all major private insurance plans and all Nebraska Medicaid plans to provide high quality Personal Use Pumps.
