I had just returned to work after having my second baby when I was informed that I was going to have two trips coming up each a week long. He was 5 months at the time of the trip and I was determined to continue breastfeeding for as long as I could. Luckily a co-worker told me about Milk Stork! It seemed easy enough and I was so excited to have a resource to send home my milk! Flash forward…

Breastfeeding is wonderful, beneficial…and hard. Traveling is a part of my job, and I was very anxious about how to get milk to my son while I was away. I pumped in 5 countries and 14 states. In cars, planes, and a cruise ship. And MilkStork helped make it happen. Milk Stork is a game-changing service and every trip I took included a toted or shipped box of milk home. I also used MilkStork’s sample work expense request letter as…

I had my son Brock on 12/20/17. After just starting with a new company and as the bread winner, I had NO maternity and was required to use all my vacation time in lieu of an alternative. I spent three short weeks with my newborn son. My job requires I travel 60% of the time and am on plane after plane. This gave me so much anxiety initially. I believe whole heartedly in the benefits of breast milk over formula…

The Working Mother Quotes We Love

As working moms, we know all too well that time to ourselves can be prrretty tough to come by. Every minute of every day belongs to someone else, from those middle-of-the-night feeding sessions to those middle-of-the-day lunch meetings. Victoria Beckham (yes, Victoria Beckham) nailed it with the working mother quotes when she said, “Like so many working mothers all over the world, I feel the constant struggle to be the best mother I can, whilst setting a good example for…

The Trials and Tribulations of Being an Out-of-Town Milk Factory

Do you want to know a little secret? A secret that a lot of moms might not admit to out loud? Sometimes, we look forward to business trips. As hard as it is to imagine leaving our sweet babies at home—there’s also a lot to look forward to. Like getting a full night’s sleep. Or, taking a shower without constantly feeling like you hear a baby crying. Or, savoring an amazing meal and talking to adults. Or, watching a movie…

Breast Milk Guidelines for Pumping Supermoms

This is for all the high-powered mamas. The ones with a double (not-so-secret) identity: kick ass employee and Supermom. You know who you are. We know who you are. We’re rocking the same cape, with no time to waste—jobs to be done and little humans to keep happy, healthy and growing into the world-changers we know they’ll become. That’s why it’s so important to know the ins and outs of pumping because while everyone says there’s no use crying over…

Jot it Down: How a Breastfeeding Journal Can Help You Transition Back to Work

There’s nothing better than having your baby nestled in your arms, looking up at you as he or she nurses, knowing that you are the one providing the nourishment your child needs. It’s a pretty empowering feeling, right? But, eventually, the time comes to return to work and no matter how much you love your career, returning to work after maternity leave is one of the toughest transitions we face as working moms – physically, emotionally and logistically. It’s difficult…

My youngest had just turned one. My eldest was three. I received a grant from my work to attend our annual conference in Austin and made plans to be gone for a full 7 days. This was the first time I would be away from my boys–ever! Breastfeeding my second actually proved to be much more difficult than my first and my milk production had been low, meaning I had no freezer full of milk to supply my mom and…

Ihad my first work trip post mat leave and I wanted to be sure my milk would safely return to my husband and baby.
