Family Forward NC Summit Speakers

Jennifer Jordan, the Director of Mom and Baby, Aeroflow Healthcare

Jennifer Jordan, Family Forward NC Summit Speaker Jennifer founded Aeroflow Breastpumps after personally experiencing the difficulties involved with needing to breast pump at work. She turned her breastfeeding experience into a passionate mission to assist all mothers by encouraging them on their breastfeeding journey by helping them receive breast pumps through insurance.

Even though providing portable pumps that make it easier for working mothers to express milk for their infants, it didn’t seem to be enough. To truly advocate for breastfeeding mothers the battle goes beyond the pump. They also need privacy, time, and respect.

That’s why Jennifer continued her mission to create a private lactation room within the Aeroflow campus for women to use in order to express milk for their babies. The space is fully equipped with everything a mother needs to feel relaxed and confident as they pump.

She also had a major role in creating and implementing family-friendly benefits for eligible employees such as:

  • Extending the maternity leave from two paid weeks to six
  • Up to a $300 reimbursement for the use of a birth or postpartum doula
  • A breast pump and breastfeeding supplies
  • The reimbursement of 50% of adoption-related expenses or up to $5,000 per adopted child (as well as access to the rest of the benefits).
  • 1 free subscription to diapers through the Diaper club for the first year of the child’s life, adoption date, or foster placement.

As a result, Aeroflow Healthcare has been certified by the North Carolina Breastfeeding Coalition as a Breastfeeding-Friendly Workplace.

This potentially has helped Aeroflow experience the benefits and positive ROI associated with providing family-friendly benefits that other supportive employeers have, including:

  • Increased productivity
  • Lowered healthcare costs
  • Decreased turnover rates
  • Improved retention rates
  • Lower rates of absenteeism

Creating The Perfect Lactation Room

Aeroflow serves as an example that providing support for working mothers doesn’t have to be difficult of expensive, even in unconventional workspaces such as the Air Force base, Joint Base Charleston. This is why we’ve created a guide to help other employers create a breastfeeding room.
