As a publicist, I have to attend my client’s events if media have been invited. When I think about attending evening gatherings, I want to quit my job. I can’t stand working long days and being away from my boys. I am torn about leaving them for longer than a regular workday.
One of the challenges of returning to work after maternity leave is finding a place to breast pump. Separate from my office, there is no place dedicated to mother’s who choose to pump. I guess I was fortunate that I had my own office, but others still had a key to my office. The first few times I pumped I was afraid someone would walk in.
