To combat infant mortality, Indonesian law requires women to provide children younger than six months breastmilk. However, a lack of employee support and educational resources has kept compliance of this law to less than fifty percent. This paper analyzes potential avenues to assist working mothers in Indonesia to provide breastmilk to their child. This includes physical and policy changes in the workplace, employing context appropriate methods to express breast milk, and utilizing community support and organization provided training and education.
