Your baby is due in a few weeks time.
You plan to go back to work after your maternity leaves end.
But you are worried... utterly worried.
How are you going to continue breastfeeding after you start working again.
You know you will need to pump..
But this whole new world of pumping seems so complicated.
So you start googling ‘when to pump breast milk’.
You read one article then go back again to Google then check out the next article.
Then you remember again how to introduce bottle to your breastfed baby, and go to Google again. And again and again...
At the end, you feel overwhelmed of so much information from different sources, and you remember so little.
Would it be easier to have ALL back to work pumping tips compiled and organised for you in one place? So that you can just go back to that oneplace whenever you need more info or forget certain details?
If this is what you want, you may considered The Ultimate Back to Work Pumping Class by Milkology.

Pumping Class by Milkology - The Review
How The Course Content Looks Like
I have mentioned before that this is an online class. But how?
(this post contains affiliate links)
So the lessons are hosted in a learning portal called Teachable. Once you purchased this online class, you’ll get the instruction how to login and start accessing your lessons.
Milkology’s back to work pumping class contains of 13 short video lessons and each video lasts about 5 mins or less.
The video is slide-based presentation with audio explanation. A PDF lecture note is also available if you prefer written content.
What lessons covered there?
- How to choose and get your breast pump
- Learn to pump like a pro
- Understanding your milk supply
- Plan your return (dealing with boss, where to pump and so on)
- How to introduce bottle to your baby without over feeding and nipple confusion.
What I Love from this Course
1. Easy to follow
It is very easy to navigate between lessons. You don’t actually need to watch from the start, say if you are interested in one particular topic or need to review certain lesson. Of course, for a complete newbie, I’d suggest to follow the lessons from the start.
Let me tell you, I’ve watched video-based breastfeeding / pumping online course by other course creator and the video is one or two-hour long, very difficult to navigate if you are looking for a particular piece of information.
Clearly, Milkology has made the class easier for us by breaking it down into multiple short videos. After all, who has time to watch one full hour of video when you have a newborn, ha!
Curious how the online course looks like? Here's a short snapshot on how you navigate the pumping class.
If you don't have time to watch the class via computer, don't worry. You can also access the course content right with your mobile phone. How convenient is that!
Personally, I don't have time to sit in front of computer for so long. So being able to access the class from my phone is a BIG PLUS.
You can watch the course while nursing the baby, or during commuting to/from work, and many more.
Milkology's back to work pumping class only costs $19. It’s very cheap! A normal breastfeeding workshop would cost $200+ while another online pumping class costs between $70-$100. This is by far, the cheapest online pumping class that I’ve ever encountered, with good quality content
3. Credible course creator.
Stacey Stewart is a certified lactation educator who has taught thousands moms about breastfeeding. More info below. So yes, she has plenty of knowledge and legally educated in lactation topic.
4. Comes with support group.
This is priceless. One important thing that keep breastfeeding mama going is support. Other than family, the other important support is a community. When you enroll in this course, you get to meet fellow pumping moms that share the same feeling and worries with you. The ones who understand how nervous it is when your baby still cannot take bottle, or when your pumping yield at work is less than what your baby needs. Just throw a question to the group and you’ll get answers pretty fast. The moms support each other every single day.
5.You even get Bonuses
Other than 13-video lessons, you also get the following bonuses:
- Video lesson on what if you don’t have enough supply.
- Pumping like a PRO ebook.
- Discount code for breastfeeding-related products.
The Cons / Things that can be Improved
1. Some lesson may not be applicable if you are residing outside United States, for example getting pump from insurance or research program. Or, the legal rule about pumping breast milk at workplace.
2. I wish there is more detailed video about pumping, for example for flange fitting rather than an image. For example, it would be better to have several pumping case study, demonstrating which one have good fit and which one is not.
3.The example of paced feeding video is hosted in YouTube, it would be better if it is hosted in the course site just like the rest of the lessons.
4. As for the support group, it’s a great place to hang out. The moms over there are very active and helping each other. But I wish Stacey is more active inside. Or perhaps she is but I’m not checking the group so often? Maybe.
Why should I consider this class , there are so much info I can get for free online
Not sure if this online class is worth taking?
Stacey provides 30-day money back guarantee. If you still feel unprepared after taking the course, no question asked, you can get a FULL refund. It is that simple.
Who is Stacey Stewart?
Stacey is a mom of three who used to have lactation cookie business. Over the time, her biz grew, and a lot of moms with supply problem bought her cookie thinking that it can boost their milk supply magically.
Well.. sometimes cookie can boost supply a little bit, but not for chronically Low supply moms. So Stacey felt bad for not being able to help them.
Since then, she dreamt about educating moms about breastfeeding. She studied lactation and becomes a certified lactation educator. Now, she taught breastfeeding and pumping to thousands of moms. To reach even more moms, she created online courses about breastfeeding and pumping. Truly, she cares about you, she wants to help you reach your lactation goal.
This online back to work pumping class is perfect for new mom planning to continue breastfeeding after returning to work. If this will be your first time pumping, you’ll get the most out of it.
What about a second-timer? Still, if you have pumping experience before, but trying to remember certain pumping details, this is a good refresher course for you.
As always, taking a breastfeeding / pumping class does not guarantee any success ahead. You need to put in effort in breastfeeding and pumping, before it becomes something natural to you. You may not able to control how much breast milk God gives you, but you can prepare your best to have a healthy milk supply.
There you go. I’ve tried my best to explain in details what you will get with Milkology’s online pumping class, including the pros and cons.
I sincerely wish you can get a better picture before deciding whether this pumping class is for you.
