Breastfeed Chicago’s Ultimate Back-to-Work Guide

Heading to work after the birth of your baby? You likely have lots of questions and concerns about how to balance working and breastfeeding. You are not alone!

Breastfeed Chicago knows that maintaining a successful breastfeeding relationship can be a challenge! It can be difficult to balance working and breastfeeding, but we are here to help you figure it all out!
