Ashley Graham is the champion of all things related to pregnancy and motherhood. In recent weeks, the new mom has been open about her fourth trimester, commenting candidly on everything from postpartum recovery to stretch marks to breastfeeding in an effort to normalize these parts of motherhood—and, now, she’s at it again.

Yesterday, Graham posted a video to her Instagram page, showing herself pumping in the back of an Uber. She wrote in the caption, “Use to answer emails on my uber rides, now I pump before my breasts explode.”

Graham’s followers are impressed and they’re letting her know it. “Oh this made me smile. Isn’t it the truth?! Oh the places I had to express to keep from exploding. So thankful for people like you putting the realities of motherhood out there,” one person wrote, while another commented, “Thank you for using your platform to help normalize breastfeeding! You are a bomb mom and a role model to so many!!” Another, still, wrote, “Feel you sister. Thank you for helping normalize this! I was pumping in my car last night after a work dinner.”

Any working mama can attest to the struggle of having to pump on-the-go (or even at work). While there has been more of an effort to provide safe pumping spaces for mothers, there’s, sadly, still a long way to go in terms of normalizing it in public opinion. Luckily, more and more celebs are opening up about the realities of motherhood and using their platforms to speak up. Graham gave birth to son Isacc Ervin on January 18 and has been a champion of moms everywhere since.
