What a huge difference a supportive work environment makes. First day of work: Me: So you know my son’s 6-months old? I’m going to need to lock the door to my office around this time. Boss: No problem, but you sure you wouldn’t prefer to use the mother’s room downstairs? Let us know if so so we can get you a key. Yesterday: Coworker knocks on door while I’m pumping so I ask if he can come back in 5-10 minutes. Co-worker (later): I am so, SO sorry about that. I didn’t even think... my wife when she went back to work... anyway, I am so sorry! Contrast this to when my coworkers would shout through the door “how much longer”, try to conduct business through the door, or stand outside my door until I was done. Apparently stress does impact milk production because I’m up 1-2 ounces and pumping in a much shorter time frame.
