Milk Stork’s Family Benefits Platform Offers Critical Support for Thousands of Working Mothers As Workforce Changes

PALO ALTO, Calif. , March 04 /Businesswire/ - As Milk Stork prepares to celebrate International Women’s Day on March 8th and Employee Appreciation Day on March 5th, the company is proudly highlighting its newest Flock members, who are joining Milk Stork in its commitment to providing key family-friendly benefits to working moms. Known by employers and breastfeeding, working mothers around the world as the first-ever breast milk shipping company, the mom-founded company has expanded to become a family benefits platform providing employers with critically needed family benefits that can be quickly and easily implemented on a pay-per-use basis.

Forward-thinking, family-friendly companies include:

  • Salesforce
  • Bausch Health Companies Inc.
  • Western Governors University
  • Work & Co

This past year has been incredibly challenging for everyone, but parents - especially moms - have been paying the ultimate price. Milk Stork’s survey from September 2020 indicated that the U.S. workforce could be at risk of losing more than 17.6 million working mothers unless employers make significant changes to address the unique issues that working mothers are facing. Kate Torgersen, founder and CEO, Milk Stork said: “Our mission has always been to support working mothers, and as a company, we have used the pandemic as an opportunity to make it easier for companies to implement benefits packages that can truly help working mothers stay in the workforce. To keep women in the workforce as COVID progresses, employers need to show that they understand the issues working mothers are facing and provide them with practical solutions. Milk Stork’s Flock is a fantastic way to provide these women with the support they need as mothers and as professionals and will help to get the workforce and the economy back on track post-COVID.”

Milk Stork is proud to provide employers with a comprehensive family benefits platform with critical benefits that working parents need right now including:

  • A full suite of lactation services to support breastfeeding moms including:
    • Virtual lactation consultations and support
    • Easy access to personal, insurance-covered breast pumps
    • Breast milk nutritional testing
    • Hospital grade breast pumps for lactation rooms
  • A variety of childcare and enrichment options including virtual, onsite and placed care solutions.
  • Fertility benefits to help aspiring parents build their families
