Being a working mom is never easy, but having a supportive boss makes all the difference.
One anonymous mom recently went back to work, and like many moms, she’ll need to pump breast milk during the day. So she sent her boss an email to give him a head’s up. She told him that, ideally, she’d take three breaks for breast pumping per day.
His response was so golden, the mom just had to share it on Reddit. He said:
“Yes, whatever you need to do be successful here, I am supportive. I think it would be helpful to block your calendar for the times that you will be unavailable as I (or others) may inadvertently schedule something over these times. And nothing here is so crucial that you should not take care of yourself so please let me know if there’s anything else that we need to discuss.”
Fellow moms on Reddit loved his positive response. Score one for working moms!
