To the participants of the Working Mom X forum,
My name is Meredith McKay, and I am a graduate student at Portland State University in the Department of Anthropology. I am also the mother of a 5-year old son, and I formerly breastfed him for the first 18 months of his life.
I am currently working on my graduate thesis, which focuses on breastfeeding mothers in the workplace. I am investigating lactation and lactation activities in the workplace in the United States.
I am posting in this forum today to inquire if any of the mothers who frequent this forum would like to participate in either a survey or an interview. There will be no compensation for the online survey, but interview respondents would receive a $20 gift card in compensation for their time. The data from these will be used for my graduate thesis, and no information will be tied to your identity.
If you are interested in participating in the survey, here is a link to the survey:
If you would like to participate in an interview, please contact me at my school e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you very much,
Meredith N. McKay
