I remember that before I left for my maternity leave that I was given the code to the door of our Lactation Room. I felt like I was in a secret society of fabulous mothers who were perfectly balancing work and life by providing sustenance to their newborns by bringing home the bacon (and the milk). Nursing was stressful for me and luckily during my time at home with the baby I had mastered the machine and thought I was fully prepped for day one back at work. Boy was I wrong?!
