Abbey Donnell has created a veritable breast-pumping heaven in the newly opened Work & Mother. Work & Mother is a fully equipped, luxury pumping experience (or as luxurious as milking yourself can be).
Horrified by stories of working moms forced to pump in supply closets, bathrooms, common spaces, and walked-in on, Donnell created a space where moms can pump in peace and privacy.
Situated in downtown Houston (more locations to come!), W&M is a fantastic option for pumping mom’s who work in the vacinity.
Just check out their list of amenities:
- Private rooms & lounge-style stations
- Hospital-grade pumps & accessories
- Equipment cleaning stations
- Shields, ointments, and nursing pads
- Ice machine & to-go bags for milk storage
- Refrigerated storage onsite
- Online/App room reservation capabilities
- On-demand lactation consultants
Motherhood Center founder Gabriela Gerhart visited Work & Mother shortly after their grand opening and was treated to an all access, behind the scenes tour by Donnell:
Returning to work after pushing a human being out of your body, adjusting to motherhood, learning your way around your fabulous new mom bod, lining up childcare, breastfeeding support, schedules, self-care, and sleep is already so.much.work. Pumping to feed your baby should be easy, not an additional stressor.
Hats off to Donnell and Work & Mother!
If you’re in need of expert, vetted, trained childcare or a night nanny so that maybe you can get some sleep once in a while, Motherhood Center is here to help. We also provide hospital-grade breastpump rentals and have an a-mazing on-call Lactation Consultant. It may take a village to raise a child, but it takes a community to foster motherhood.
