You don't have to stop breastfeeding when you go back to work or school. Pumping and storing breast milk allows your baby to have your milk even if you aren't around.

Birth is just the beginning! Make sure to find a medical home for both you and your baby to get regular check-ups. This means a pediatrician for baby, and a doctor, midwife, or OBGYN for you!
