doing on interview in a few hours about BF and my work's new lactation center

pretty excited

now I just have to not be too nervous.

Sitting here thinking of my favorite parts of BF (and here, the desire to pump at work to keep it up).

What would you want to say?

Who is interviewing you? What is a lactation center? I'm thinking it's a dedicated pumping room. I would highlight the advantages of the dedicated room both for the employer and the mom/employee.

Anyway, it sounds like a great opportunity.

yep, its a dedicated set of rooms for moms to pump in. it makes a huge difference.

we're talking about why we chose to BF in general (I should have brushed up on the health benefits) and about how the LC makes a difference in our worklife.

I JUMPED at the chance.

Awsome. Good luck

the dedicated room woudl be great. no one intereupting you.
What will the room have in it--things that would be nice--comfortable chiar, sink, maybe small fridge, table

benifits--
emotional--knowing that eventhough you have to be away from your new child you (as the mother) are still providing his/her nutrition. Makes me still feel conected during the day.

financial--one less monetary burden that I don't have to worry about. formula can be expensive.

~with the special room I would know that my employers are choosing to support me as a breastfeeding mom because they want to ranther than becuase I had to force the issue with laws ect.
