Work. Pump. Repeat
The New Mom's Survival Guide to Breastfeeding and Going Back to WorkBook - 2015
Meet the frenemy of every working, breastfeeding mother: the breast pump. Many women are beyond "breast is best" and on to figuring out how to make milk while returning to demanding jobs. Work. Pump. Repeat. is the first book to give women what they need to know beyond the noise of the "Mummy Wars" and judgment on breastfeeding choices. Jessica Shortall shares the nitty-gritty basics of surviving the working world as a breastfeeding mum, offering a roadmap for negotiating the pumping schedule with colleagues, navigating business travel and problem-solving when forced to pump in less-than-desirable locales. Drawing on the war stories, hacks, and humour of working mums, and her own stories from her demanding job and travel in developing countries, she gives women moral support for dealing with the stress and guilt that come with juggling working and breastfeeding. As she tells the reader in her witty, inspiring manifesto, "Your worth as a mother is not measured in ounces."
