New Virginia Law Protects Mothers’ Right to Breastfeed in Public
The Virginia state legislature passed, and Gov. McAuliffe signed into law, bills this year that protect a mother’s right to breastfeed her child in any public location. The new law went into effect July 1. We are proud that one of our patient’s mothers lobbied for the law, and are honored she credited the breastfeeding support she received at Pediatric Associates of Richmond as a motivating force for her passion and lobbying efforts.
