As Milk Stork prepares to celebrate International Women’s Day on March 8th and Employee Appreciation Day on March 5th, the company is proudly highlighting its newest members, who are joining Milk Stork in its commitment to providing key family-friendly benefits to working moms. Known by employers and breastfeeding, working mothers around the world as the first-ever breast milk shipping company, the mom-founded company has expanded to become a family benefits platform providing employers with critically needed family benefits that can be quickly and easily implemented on a pay-per-use basis.
Milk Stork was launched in August 2015 as a milk shipping company for moms who needed a simple solution for getting their breast milk to their babies back home.

Now Salesforce, Bausch Health Companies Inc. Western Governors University, and Work & Co and joining “the Flock”.
This past year has been incredibly challenging for everyone, but parents – especially moms – have been paying the ultimate price. Milk Stork’s survey from September 2020 indicated that the U.S. workforce could be at risk of losing more than 17.6 million working mothers unless employers make significant changes to address the unique issues that working mothers are facing. Kate Torgersen, founder and CEO, Milk Stork said: “Our mission has always been to support working mothers, and as a company, we have used the pandemic as an opportunity to make it easier for companies to implement benefits packages that can truly help working mothers stay in the workforce. To keep women in the workforce as COVID progresses, employers need to show that they understand the issues working mothers are facing and provide them with practical solutions. Milk Stork’s Flock is a fantastic way to provide these women with the support they need as mothers and as professionals and will help to get the workforce and the economy back on track post-COVID.”
