Milkstork r

If you are in the practice of sending employees on overnight business trips AND you employ new mothers AND you believe in treating your employees right we’ve got just the bird for you. 

Milk Stork is the first breast milk shipping company to support nursing mothers who are on the road and need to send their breast milk back home - and they offer special company packages so employers can support their maternal workforce! A-MAZING.

A special thanks to Littler's tweet for the heads up on this awesome company!
