The Pathways, Inc. Erwin Child & Family Center (ECFC) was one of several businesses to receive a Breastfeeding Friendly Business Award on July 30, 2014 at the Farmer’s Market in Pulteney Park in Bath, NY. Steuben County Legislator, Robin Lattimer, presented the awards on behalf of the Steuben County WIC Program to local employers and businesses that are supportive of women who are breastfeeding in their workplace or visiting a local business.
“Many moms regularly breastfeed at our center. It’s more challenging when the mom is also our employee and we have to maintain proper adult to child ratio in the classrooms; but we also understand the importance of breastfeeding to the health and wellbeing of the child and mother. We make it a priority to provide the appropriate place and time for all moms,” said Colleen Coro, Director of Pathways Erwin Child & Family Center.
