Dear Graduate Student Moms,

A friend of mine in History of Science at Penn is doing a project on how
graduate students have balanced/negotiated the demands of breastfeeding and
graduate school.  She has been having trouble finding graduate student
mothers who breastfeed or used to breastfeed and asked if there were any
students here that could provide her with some more data.  All personal
details will be kept confidential, of course.

We all know what it's like trying to collect data, so please fill out the
attached questionnaire if you have time!  She would need the data by Tuesday
to have enough time to meet her deadline.  You can send the completed
questionnaire to meggie.crnic at gmail.com .

Thank you!
