Hawaii Mulls Exempting Breastfeeding Mothers From Jury Duty

Hawaii Mulls Exempting Breastfeeding Mothers From Jury Duty

BY MARINA STARLEAF RIKER-Associated Press April 8, 2016

HMHB Hawaii was recently featured in an article on several media sites on the supporting of Hawaii's bill to allow breastfeeding mothers to be exempt from jury duty. Our goal as an organization is to support breastfeeding moms with this bill, as it is critical to maintain a regular feeding/pumping schedule to ensure milk supply, which is extremely difficult (if not impossible) during a jury trial.

Support Key For Breastfeeding Moms

December 05, 2015

You know breastfeeding is good for you and for baby. But, how do you get started and how long should you breastfeed?
First off, moms who are breastfeeding can benefit from finding a support network, connecting with people who understand and encourage the choice to breastfeed, and can offer helpful advice if questions come up.

Many moms find that breastfeeding comes naturally and they don’t run into any major problems. Others might be the first in their family to choose to breastfeed, or they might run into concerns that make it a challenge to continue.

Lisa Kimura, a breastfeeding peer counselor and executive director of Healthy Mothers, Healthy Babies gave us these suggestions on getting started:

Unintentional suffocation is a leading cause of fatal and nonfatal injury among infants1 and Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) is the leading cause of death among infants between the age of one month and one year; the third leading cause of infant mortality overall in the United States.

In Hawai’i, data3 SIDS was the leading cause of death among post-neonate resident infants in Hawaii, accounting for 13% of the deaths over the 2010-2014 period. Data2 also indicates that only 35.4% of babies usually sleep in an environment that meets all of the American Academy of Pediatrics’ (AAP) recommendations for a safe sleep environment. As many families are unaware of the simple preventative steps, as well as the behaviors and risk factors that endanger their infant, education is an ongoing area of importance for the nearly 19,000 births each year in Hawai’i.2
