As a military spouse, I totally “get it” … I understand the challenges and hurdles. From deployment, getting unexpected orders, figuring out how to juggle life, and more when welcoming a baby. Now whether this is your first or third, caring for a newborn is just as challenging. Providing what is best for your precious bundle of joy shouldn’t be.
Military community has always been supportive of women, especially moms. They believe that the role of every mother is a sacred one and needs appreciation. As a matter of fact, there are programs to help military spouses who have babies. The best example is The Breastfeeding Shop.
The Breastfeeding Shop offers a breast pump for military spouses through Tricare at NO COST. The best part here is it is a hassle-free application! No more waiting lines, no more filing of documents. I made an FAQ to guide you how to claim your breast pump, if you are interested, here’s how:
