Many mothers face a challenging decision when it comes to returning to work after she’s had a baby. You might be staring into the face of that decision right now. It’s a tough, personal choice. The questions that you begin asking can often be overwhelming and the answers you seek to find are oftentimes not readily available. But there’s hope as we are in an ever-changing society where the normalization of breastfeeding in the workplace is becoming a more common and accepted practice.

In this episode, we continue talking with nursing mamas in honor of World Breastfeeding Week. My friend, Nicole Garden, shares with us her journey of returning to work three different times with her three children and how each time was unique with the different options she had. Nicole has a passion for having close relationships with women. Advocating for women has always come naturally to Nicole after attending an all girls high school and being active in her college sorority. She’s been married to her husband, Sam, for nearly13 years and they have three children ages 10, 8 and 6. She is an Omaha native and currently specializes in residential real estate here in the local Omaha area.
