Dear Milk Stork Moms,

Five years ago, I started Milk Stork because when it comes to business travel, I didn’t want moms to have to choose between nourishing their babies and their careers. I knew I needed to solve the annoying logistics of pumping and traveling to make life a little bit easier for breastfeeding, working, traveling moms.

To date, Milk Stork has shipped over 1.8 million ounces of breast milk, we support over 400 companies, and represent over 12,000 moms.
We know that you are unstoppable wherever you go– no matter where life takes you.

So, as the world celebrates International Women’s Day, I am thrilled to announce that the day has come when international travel is no longer off limits for pumping moms.

Introducing International Pump & Check.

Airport security rules for carrying breast milk vary from country to country and are often inconsistently enforced.

But now, we have a solution.

Milk Stork International Pump & Check provides everything you need to pack and check your breast milk as luggage. The cooler holds 108 oz. of breast milk and provides a minimum of 90 hours of refrigeration from the time of activation.

While our community continues to grow, so do our solutions for pumping moms.

After all, we were created for moms on a mission!

Sincerely,
Kate Torgersen
Mama to Jackson, Finn & Zoë
Founder & CEO, Milk Stork

I‘ve used Milk Stork on almost all of my business trips. The one time, I didn’t it was a disaster. My company wanted to use dry ice and I recommended we use Milk Stork; I was overridden by someone higher up who had always had a great experience with dry ice. Here’s how it went down: Days 1-4 my milk was shipped overnight at 4pm to my home for a 10am delivery and all was fine. On the last day,…

A Note from YouthfulNest on Designing the Family Room @ SXSW

When Milk Stork reached out to me to partner with them in designing the Milk Stork Family Room @ SXSW, I was thrilled! The Milk Stork brand is providing a much-needed service that supports motherhood in a way that could only have been realized by a woman whose own personal experience in trying to make it all work — breastfeed and travel for business — resulted in the creation of something innovative and revolutionary. This is something that I can…
