Pumping at Work

The Washington Post recently published an article on their website (See it here) about the trials and tribulations of nursing mothers who need to pump at work.

The article introduces a Washington DC law (The Child’s Right to Nurse Act) passed in December 2007 that gives nursing mothers the right to a private and clean room outside of a restroom where they are free to express their milk at work.

We applaud the intentions of the lawmakers, but also mourn the fact that passing a law was necessary to get employers to provide a good space for nursing mothers to pump.
