Return to work consultation

Many mothers return to work while they are still breastfeeding.

There are many considerations in returning to work whether it's full time or part time.

  • Making arrangements for childcare either with a family member, a nanny or in a daycare facility.
  • Talking to your manager or HR department about space and time for pumping.
  • Refining your pumping techniques and creating a stash for backup feeding
  • Double checking your milk storage routine
  • Buying some work clothing that fits, including some pumping/nursing bras.
  • Picking up some additional supplies like pump parts, milk bags, bottles and accessories
  • And, coming to terms with your sadness at leaving your baby

It's overwhelming and rather than inventing a whole new process, you can schedule a consultation to borrow some time tested ideas, cheat sheets and checklists, learn some next level pumping skills, and explore your conflicting feelings.

  1. Double check flange fit and pump levels
  2. Check pump parts
  3. Daily pump bag checklist (so you have all you need)
  4. Daycare and Nanny resources
  5. Milk storage card
  6. Gift bag of goodies
  7. Answer all your question

Feeding him was a huge burden and caused me a great deal of anxiety because of how much it hurt.

I worked with Donna during the first few months of my son's life. I went from dreading nursing, to nursing on demand thanks to her support.
