Is that medication safe for a breastfeeding mother?

Know what you can and can't take.

Each day breastfeeding mothers are misinformed about taking medications while breastfeeding, many moms are told they must stop breastfeeding or "pump and dump." In the majority of cases, this is bad advice on the part of the health care provider based on his or her limited education about breastfeeding and medications.

 

Dr. Tom Hale, PhD, has performed extensive research on the effects of medication in mothers' milk. His site features a professional and mother's forum for looking up and asking information about medications and mothers milk.

Testimonial

“The pharmacist told me to 'pump and dump' Are you kidding? I called Nightingales immediately, the medication was completely safe. I would never trust such important information on a pharmacy tech.”  Rachel, Breastfeeding Mom
