Pumping at Work Takes on a Whole New Meaning When You're in a War Zone

Kelly at work (Glen Carey)

Pumping at work can be hard enough, but what about when you're a war correspondent? Last year, we interviewed international reporter Kelly McEvers about her experience as a new mom working on the front lines. She told us this story about being mistaken for a spy at the Yemen-Saudi border. For the full episode, click here.

We're revisiting our favorite breastfeeding stories in anticipation of our upcoming What's Up With Your Boobs? Google+ Hangout (June 17, 3pm ET). Host Hillary Frank will be joined by special guests Nancy Holtzman, a lactation consultant with over 25 years experience, and Paula Szuchman, WNYC's digital director and mom of two, to answer your breastfeeding conundrums!

We are currently taking questions on Twitter with the hashtag #yourboobs  or you can submit them live through the Hangout.
