The workshop, Pumping: How to make it work for your journey!, will be an informal Q&A for families trying to figure out what role pumping will play in the feeding of their child. Pumping isn’t easy or a one size fits all solution and being prepared for it is the key to success. Tracy and Mat will come prepared with common mistakes, tips and tricks, brand specific advice, and tons of breastfeeding support resources. Feel free to be ready with questions at any point to see how they can help with your journey!
