They point out one example where a co-worker walked in on one mama pumping, something that probably happens too often due to few set guidelines at most workplaces regarding private pumping spaces. That's one downside. The other costs to mamas can include things like giving up breaks to pump, having to purchase a quality breast pump, and problems with milk production due to nerves or because sometimes, pumping is not as easy as it looks.
