Kathryn F., Washington, DC
I am a working mother. I nurse my baby to give him the antibodies he needs to build a good immune system. I also work to assist my husband in providing for our family.
The Affordable Care Act obliged my health insurance company to provide me with a free breast pump, which would have cost me $250 on the free market. Now I can return to work without causing my baby’s health to suffer by denying him the breast milk he needs to build his immune system.
