Breastfeeding @ Work

In this project I – Noortje – explored my own experiences with breastfeeding at work. I was still in the middle of doing my PhD when I gave birth to my second daughter and found myself struggling with demands placed on me by my job (“do research, read, write!”) and my motherhood (“spend time with your kids, breastfeed!”). I expressed breast milk in an attempt to satisfy everyone except maybe myself. The poem below tries to capture some of this struggle. You can read the full story of my experiences here
