When we launched our #iPumpedHere campaign, we knew countless folks would have stories to share about the many places we've pumped breastmilk, from storage closets to bathroom stalls to parked cars and beyond. 

But sharing stories was only the beginning. As MomsRising's Tina Sherman says,

“Over 60 percent of women do not have access to proper accommodations. And we need to bring those moms out of the bathroom stalls and into the proper workplace accommodations that they deserve.”

So we took those stories shared from over 13,000 people, coupled them with studies and statistics showing the benefits of breastfeeding to working moms, babies, *and* employers, and delivered them straight to lawmakers in Washington, D.C. 

And we made waves in the media! Check out the amazing coverage of our trip to Capitol Hill to stand up for breastfeeding and pumping moms and babies across the nation:
