The Californer/10136748

PALO ALTO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Milk Stork CEO and advocate for working moms, Kate Torgersen, is publicly opposing the news that Olympians who are nursing moms might have to choose between the Games and their babies (Washington Post). In a bid to support these women, Torgersen and Milk Stork are offering the company's assistance to nursing athletes and coaches to get their breast milk home from Japan.

"The Olympics are all about the triumph of the human spirit, pushing beyond obstacles, digging deep, and pursuing the highest levels of a sport," said Kate Torgersen. "For athletes who are mothers--and for working mothers alike--the bond with our children is a primary and essential root source of ambition, performance and drive. It's time to honor, support and celebrate motherhood as a fountainhead of strength and achievement versus treating it like an inconvenient professional appendage."
