The practical, relatable, and humorous guide to surviving the difficult, awkward, and rewarding job of being a breastfeeding, working mom. Meet the frenemy of every working, breastfeeding mother: the breast pump. Many women are beyond “breast is best” and on to figuring out how to make milk while returning to demanding jobs. Work. Pump. Repeat. is the first book to give women what they need to know beyond the noise of the “Mommy Wars” and judgment on breastfeeding choices. Jessica Shortall shares the nitty-gritty basics of surviving the working world as a breastfeeding mom, offering a road map for negotiating the pumping schedule with colleagues, navigating business travel, and problem-solving when forced to pump in less-than-desirable locales. Drawing on the war stories, hacks, and humor of working moms, and on her own stories from her demanding job and travel in developing countries, she gives women moral support for dealing with the stress and guilt that come with juggling working and breastfeeding. As she tells the reader in her witty, inspiring manifesto, “Your worth as a mother is not measured in ounces.” 2015 Axiom Business Book Award Winner (Silver) in the category of Women/Minorities

Mit diversen Putzstellen versucht sie, ihre kleine Familie über Wasser zu halten – umso tiefer sitzt der Schock, als sie erfährt, dass ihre Lieblingskundin, eine nette Professorin, verstorben ist. Doch dann die Überraschung: Maia wurde im Testament bedacht, vielmehr: Maias Kinder. Aus dem Nachlass soll das Geld für eine teure Privatschule bestritten werden. Und plötzlich finden sich Maia und ihre Kinder in einer Welt wieder, in der ein Leben ohne Bio-Obst und Geigenunterricht undenkbar ist – und in der ein hinreißender Lehrer Maias Herz höher schlagen lässt ...
