Medications & Breastfeeding

Having to pump and dump your breast milk for any length of time is painful and more times than not, it’s probably not necessary. But how do we know who to trust when given direction to discard our milk? It’s not uncommon to be given incorrect information from your very own provider. Even if you trust their recommendation, it doesn’t hurt to get a second or third opinion. Luckily there are resources easily accessible for us to do our own homework!⠀

These resources are not limited to breastfeeding parents, pregnant people can also benefit from their services. ⠀
