Mothers are doing every kind of work now — including serving in the armed forces. Some of the challenges for breastfeeding mothers in the military seem to be shared by all working mothers. Others (as far as I can tell as a non-military person) are unique. I just found a website by a US navy veteran and IBCLC, Robyn Roche-Paull.

You are not alone…. you are one of many in a long line of women that have decided to take on the challenge of combining motherhood and the military.
