When you are traveling sans your nursing baby, a breast pump becomes your best friend. Depending on the length of your trip, you may find yourself having to lug gallons of milk back home, not to mention needing to endure lengthy inspections by TSA. Now, Milk Stork can help you transport your milk internationally, in an effort to normalize pumping and motherhood in the workplace.

Nursing Mother

Milk Stork, the first-ever breast milk shipping company, has been helping moms get breast milk home to hungry babies since 2015 and has shipped more than 3,200,000 ounces of breast milk. Now, the company has expanded its services to include the International Pump & Ship designed to support breastfeeding moms who are traveling overseas.

“Over the past few years, Milk Stork has become known as a game changer in offices across the country,” said Kate Torgersen, founder and CEO, Milk Stork. “Now, we are expanding our offering to support more moms in new ways, and to make it easier to transport breast milk from wherever their ambitions take them. With the launch of the International Pump & Ship, Milk Stork truly becomes a global brand, and we are excited to continue offering innovative solutions to breastfeeding moms wherever they are.”

Milk Stork’s International Pump & Ship option supports moms on international trips enabling  them to pack and ship 108 oz (a three-to-five day supply of breast milk for most moms) of refrigerated breast milk back to their babies in the U.S. The International Pump & Ship cooler kit includes everything that moms need to pack and ship their milk internationally including breast milk storage bags, international shipping labels and customs paperwork. The kit also includes a travel duffle and luggage tag, if travel plans change.

Available now, the International Pump & Ship enables road warrior moms to ship from 54 countries and starts at $399.
