In brief: Yes
If you are planning on returning to work or if you want to have the opportunity to have some personal time away from your baby, it is wise to pump and store some of your breastmilk so that someone else will be able to feed your baby.
Pumping early in (in the first week or so) also will help your breast milk come in faster by stimulating your body to produce more milk.
