Mothers often may not know how to talk with their employers about what they will need in terms of space and breaks when they return to work to express milk. Offering tools to mothers, such as scripts on how to talk to their employer, would be helpful. Also educating women on what protections they have under current state and federal laws, and who to reach out to should they face barriers to pumping at work are also key. Empowering women to advocate for themselves.
