Praise for Pump or Bust
“It provides a really useful tool kit that goes beyond breastfeeding to what it really means to be a pumping and breastfeeding mama on the go. Including things like draft agreements for hiring care providers, on the road pumping schedules, packing lists, etc. It would be a great shower gift, or mentor gift for a bosom buddy taking on breastfeeding.”
– Sascha Mayer, Cofounder of Mamava
“The apps, the classes, blogs and other what to expect books never tell you about this stuff! Recommend this for new moms and dads alike. Great perspective, storytelling and all around advocacy. Learned a lot I didn’t know I even needed to know, but now I can’t stop telling everyone about.”
“Karlee’s insightful exploration of the delicate dance between motherhood and professional life resonated deeply. The authenticity with which you tackle the challenges faced by new mothers in the corporate realm is both refreshing and inspiring. You delivered a profound celebration of resilience, a tribute to the strength inherent in balancing the demands of work and the joys of motherhood. Your words will undoubtedly serve as a guiding light, fostering a sense of community among women who share this unique intersection of roles.”
