You may be going back to work and are worrying about how breastfeeding is going to fit in.

Let your employer know in writing that you’ll still be breastfeeding when you return. Employers have an obligation to support you to breastfeed, speak to your employer and come up with a plan together.  Some women choose to express milk at work and others to simply feed when they are with their baby.

Have a look at the NHS website for more information and tips on expressing milk for your baby, how to store and give your baby the milk or catch up with our Facebook Live video where Emily talks us through the emotions and practicalities of breastfeeding when you return to work.

Two experiences of mums expressing at work

Mum Spice and baby Nelly, from Gravesend

"I went back to work when Nelly was a couple of months old. My husband stays home to care for her and our other 2 children. I pump 3 times a day at work and that’s enough for Nelly for the next day.  It makes me very proud when I look down at my daughter and see that she is so happy and healthy as she is because of me and only me!"
