“Women in hospital medicine face major obstacles”

Who can relate to these quotes?:

“It’s two chairs that are behind a curtain in a women’s locker room in the basement of the hospital, that are tiny and gross,” said one physician.

Another said this:

“I would get to work, set up, and pump while chart reviewing. Then I would go and see people…and come back to my office and pump and write a few notes. And go out and see more patients, and then pump. I was like a cow.”

Some stopped breastfeeding early because of these difficulties.
