Jessica Alba sets up nursing space for new mums

Jessica Alba has transformed her The Honest Company offices into a haven for new mums and dads.
The actress and entrepreneur, who launched the ethical consumer goods company in 2011, made it a point to honour families in the workplace by offering generous maternity and paternity leave to parents, with mums given four months paid leave, and dads two.
Jessica, who is a nursing mum herself after giving birth to her third child on New Year’s Eve (31Dec17), also wanted to pad the transition from time off to office work, explaining her employees aren’t pressured to take up their complete workload right away.
“As they ease back into work, maybe it doesn’t start full-time; maybe it’s three days a week until they get their childcare together or they feel more comfortable,” the Sin City star explained at the BlogHer18 Creator’s Summit in New York this week (ends10Aug18). “We work with them on that.
“I also built a really beautiful nursing space in our office with pumps and refrigerators and couches. So they (new mums) can do it all with dignity. (Breastfeeding) is something that should be celebrated, not shameful.”
