La Leche League
LLL are the forerunners in breastfeeding aid and education. Not only do they have some of the most comprehensive and accurate info, but you can find a local group to or nearby leader to come to the hospital and/or your house for one-on-one help.
No frills on this site and most easily used when searched via Google (i.e. “Kellymom pumping and work”), but they are very informative, covering just about anything you can think of, in multiple ways, in easy layman’s terms. I have never been let down by this website or their extensive list of sources at the end of every page.
