A working mom's schedule could be like this. Half and hour before leaving home, breastfeed baby. If baby wouldn't drink, then use a breast pump to express milk and store it in fridge before going to work. Leave with a insulated container large enough for an ice pack and bottles of milk and breast pump.
Reach office 15 minutes early, spend 10 minutes expressing what you can, seal up milk in a bottle or milk bags, hide in a box, hide box in a plastic bag and keep that in office fridge. Dump ice pack in freezer compartment of office fridge.
Lunch time, have a really quick lunch, packed food whatever, and spend half an hour in toilet expressing milk. Seal that up, hide it in a box, in a bag and keep in fridge.
After office hours, straight to toilet and express some more milk and store that up too.
After work, time to go home, if 4 hours or more have passed since your last milking session, express again.
Pack up everything put ice pack in your insulated container packets or bottles milk on that ice pack and bring everything with you home quickly. Once home, put everything in fridge so baby has fresh breastmilk to drink next day while you are away.
