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…

I had signed up to go on my oldest son’s 8th grade class trip to Washington D.C. before I thought about the fact that I would still be breastfeeding our 7 month old. While trying to figure out the logistics of how I was going to manage pumping and then getting milk back to Missouri, I stumbled across an ad for Milk Stork. The boxes were waiting at our hotel when I checked in. FedEx was being a bit difficult…

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…

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. A co-worker had just needed to do the same about 6 months prior and she recommended Milk Stork. The process was incredibly easy and I felt secure in knowing that my hard work would not go to waste. – Submitted by Emily Clarkson, Email Marketing…

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,…

The whole process was a lifesaver for me! I had planned to be out of town for 4 days for a family wedding and getting enough milk supply stocked up beforehand was difficult to do, I had anxiety about leaving the baby and a fear that our our caretaker would run out of milk. I googled for information and milk stork popped up, even though it’s a little pricey it was totally worth me not having to worry while I…
