"It’s little (big) things like this that made it possible for me to do my job AND be a parent."
On screen, she is all about style, packing powerful punches, fighting villains and enchanting people with her Loki magic. And off screen, Sophia Di Martino is busy playing the role of a real superhero — she is a mother.
New mothers, who are nursing their baby, will know the struggle of going back to work, especially if they are breastfeeding. Di Martino, who stars as Sylvie — a variant version of the titular god of mischief Loki — alongside Tom Hiddleston in the Disney+ Hotstar series, Marvel’s Loki, recently shared a post on Instagram, sharing details about how her costume allowed her to pump breast milk on set.

“It’s not easy being a working Mama (Understatement!) #christinewada designed Sylvie’s costume and had the genius idea of adding concealed zippers for easy access so that I could use my hands-free @elvie pumps easily (pictured) and nurse my baby between takes,” the British actor wrote in the caption.
In the picture, she poses in her black catsuit, which her character is seen wearing on the show, with designer Christine Wada having altered it with zippers. “It’s little (big) things like this that made it possible for me to do my job AND be a parent. I’m forever grateful 💖”
While women do not have it easy managing their careers and taking care of their newborns, these things go a long way in showing that with a work environment as accommodating, working women can embrace their inner superhero and ace their job as well.
