This month we will be featuring a new blog series for working moms. We will explore everything from the best breastpump for working moms, what you need to know about pumping and working, what your employer needs to know about your pumping rights in the workplace, and how to use your insurance benefits to receive a free breastpump through your insurance. We will kick off this month with the best pump for working moms.
Going back to work and pumping
Many moms wonder if they will be able to continue breastfeeding when they return to work. The good news is with the right breastpump you will have no issues breastfeeding and being a working mom! Better yet, with the right breastpump you might even be able to breastfeed longer than you expected – a win for both you and your little one!
The best breastpump for working moms combines comfort, efficiency, and discretion all in one compact design. When you qualify for your breastpump through insurance there will be a couple of breastpumps your insurance company will cover 100%. Although this is great, a basic insurance breastpump usually does not come with the useful accessories needed for working moms. If this is the case you have a few options:
- Buy the needed accessories a la carte and customize your pumping experience
- Pay out of pocket for your upgrade breastpump
- Use your HSA or FSA plan to upgrade to the pump of your choice
