At some time or another, many of us have toreturn 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 topump 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 basiclegal rights and there should be no need to feel ashamed.
Here atPeachymama, 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.

The sizing & fit of Peachymama nursing clothes are specially designed for you and your ‘after baby’ body. This means that if you were say, an AU/UK ’S’ (8-10) before bubs came along, you’ll most likely be the same now in Peachymama sizing.
Wrap the measuring tape around the fullest part of your bust, waist and hips. When measuring your bust we recommend you wear your nursing bra.
