Healthy Horizons Corporate Lactation Services Announces 2021 Lactation Room Giveaway Winners

Healthy Horizons Breastfeeding Centers and Corporate Lactation Services is pleased to announce the Grand Prize and First Prize winners of the 2021 National Breastfeeding Month Lactation Room Giveaway.

The 2021 Grand Prize Winner is BASF, who was nominated by employee Janessa Dukes from the Freeport, TX location. Janessa nominated her workplace to help provide their working mothers a dedicated space close to the production line to give them a safe and comfortable place to pump and store breast milk. A dedicated lactation room will give new mothers peace of mind as they make the decision to return to work after having a baby.

BASF will receive a prize package worth $5,000 which includes a Lactation Room Chair and Table, Lactation Room Essentials Bundle, a hospital-grade Breast Pump Rental, Ameda Steam Sanitizer Bags, Healthy Horizons Back-to-Work Class and Healthy Horizons One-Time Lactation Room Servicing™.

BASF Corporation creates chemistry for a sustainable future and is headquartered in Florham Park, NJ with approximately 17,000 employees in North America including the winning location in Freeport, Texas.

Healthy Horizons has also awarded the 2021 First Prize to Ridgid Tool, a division of Emerson. Employee Rachel Wilkins nominated the Elyria, OH location to support its three shifts of employees. Jessica noted that this location is in an older building and assistance in creating a dedicated lactation space to support nursing mothers returning to work was needed. As runners up, Ridgid Tool will receive a Lactation Room Upgrade which includes a Lactation Room Chair and Table, Lactation Room Essentials Bundle, Munchkin Lactation Snacks, a hospital-grade Breast Pump Rental and Healthy Horizons Back-to-Work Class.

Emerson, headquartered in St. Louis, MO, is a global technology and engineering company providing innovative solutions for customers in industrial, commercial, and residential markets.
