Dr. Dratman: "This amendment, a misguided attempt to change Medicaid, is unnecessary and will actually increase costs, both to beneficiaries and to Pennsylvania."
Earlier this month, Maternity Care Coalition became a pioneer in parental leave policies. JoAnne Fischer, Executive Director of MCC, announced that the organization will begin aligning their Human Resource policies with their mission, offering 6 weeks of paid family leave—which extends to new parents, whether biological, adoptive or foster parents, and same sex domestic partners.
At Maternity Care Coalition, we assist mothers through the earliest stages of their children’s development. But what happens when parents are not their child’s only teacher, when children spend hours learning—and developing—in front of a screen?
At Maternity Care Coalition, we are working to make breastfeeding accessible and safe for mothers and their children. To accomplish this, we are encouraging policy makers to support HB-11oo, the Workplace Accommodations for Nursing Mothers Act, which would promote workplace fairness by ensuring that nursing moms have a private, sanitary place to express breast milk and reasonable break time to do so across the state of Pennsylvania.
