a breast-feeding strategy during your pregnancy.
If you are planning on working away from your baby after a maternity
leave, look into accommodations for pumping. The ideal setup is a quiet,
private room where you can pump a couple of times a day. Some states mandate
that employers allow breaks and privacy for pumping. If you don't live in such
a state, talk to your human resources department about making arrangements that
work for both you and your employer.
