Where Do You Pump At Work?

Hey mamas!

I'm thinking about putting together a slideshow of spaces where women work. As many of you know, federal law requires that workplaces make space for women to pump — but what that space looks like varies wildly.

Please send me photos of where you pump at work. My email is iraftery@kuow.org. In your email, please include your name and where you work. Some people have said they're uncomfortable attaching their name to work — if that's you, just include the city, profession and work place. 

When you take the photo, consider how you frame the shot. I have included two images — including my pumping station — to give you an idea of decent images. 

Thank you!
