At some time or another, many of us have to return to work after the blissful months of baby-gazing and bonding with our new bundles of joy. Many will still be breastfeeding at this point and will need to consider pumping milk at work.
While some people may feel embarrassed about needing to pump at work, or feel a sense of guilt that they are having extra “breaks” compared to their co-workers, this process is well within your basic legal rights and there should be no need to feel ashamed.
Here at Peachymama, we like to help out any way we can, so we’ve compiled a short list of handy hints for new mothers returning to the workforce, to make pumping during work hours a more comfortable process.
Under Australian legislation, you are protected as a breastfeeding mother to have the right to pump milk during work hours in a safe and comfortable area without discrimination. Before returning to work from maternity leave, speak with a supervisor or human resources coordinator to discuss your specific needs so they can help you feel comfortable with your decision.

How do our little ones go from their very first sounds to something more definite and pronounced as their first words?
Here are some ideas for you to use so that you can have a successful road trip with your baby.
So that you get an accurate measurement using our sizing chart make sure you wrap the measuring tape around the fullest part of your bust and hips. When measuring your bust it is recommended you wear your breastfeeding/nursing bra.
If you’re not sure or need some help please don’t hesitate to call us on 1300 473 224 or email us here.
