This series of digital photographs documents postpartum mothers within various spaces in which they pump. I am interested in sharing the awkward spaces that women often have to pump in, that most others never see. While they are often vulnerable and uncomfortable, it becomes a part of their everyday routine and an intimate memory in their personal story.
