Quote: Originally Posted by Chavelamomela If a mom has to pump, would a note from a doctor explaining how frequently and how long the breaks have to be helpful to either get the mom excused or achieve an arrangement that would be workable? I was called to serve when I was 1 week postpartum with ds1. I postponed and served 6 months later (i worked full-time).
