The Oklahoma Healthy Birth Alliance is proud to be a sponsor of the initiative to recognize worksites in Oklahoma that support breastfeeding mothers when they return to work.

 

The Oklahoma State Department of Health, the Oklahoma Healthy Birth Alliance, and the Coalition of Oklahoma Breastfeeding Advocates proudly recognize the following worksites for outstanding support to Oklahoma mothers and their breastfeeding infants and children.

Gold Star Worksites have exceeded the minimum criteria and have met at least three additional criteria.  The recognition period is for five years initially, with the option to renew by checklist confirmation.  Certificates are awarded semi-annually.
