The certification is awarded to employers that work hard to ensure families receive the support and education they need before, during and after pregnancy. There are three levels of certification: Bronze, Silver & Gold. Certification is based on a self-assessment completed with I am a Healthy Start Employer staff.
To receive the gold-level certification, CSX met requirements around breastfeeding; information and resources; policies; and child care.
