    • Medicine

Eight years ago, when To-wen Tseng returned to work after giving birth to her first child, her right to pump at work was denied and the company refused to provide either a space or a break time to pump (lawsuit).

Stevie Merino (Birthworkers of Color Collective) is a doula and lactation professional whose graduate school research focuses on Pacific Islander and Chamorro breastfeeding, chest feeding, birth traditions, and the disparities in birthing health outcomes.

Today they discuss the fight for lactation rights.
