We can't get enough of talking with Dr. Nice about medications for increasing milk production. Domperidone is at the forefront of our discussion, as usual. We delve a bit deeper into dosages and side effects of dom with Dr. Nice. But we don't leave you there: we know that domperidone is tricky business in the United States right now (since it is not yet FDA approved) and wondered if there may be other medications for increasing milk production that are both safe and more available in the US. Dr. Nice has the answers!
I first learned about Malunggay (a.k.a. Moringa) as an herb to help with milk production when I was writing Breastfeeding Without Birthing. When Diana West, IBCLC, author of Making More Milk and internationally known expert on milk production, was reviewing a draft of my book she suggested adding this really helpful herb. I'm so glad she did! Since then, I've worked with countless nursing parents who have successfully used this herb - whether they are inducing lactation, relactating, or needing to support milk production for other reasons. During this interview, I chatted with Angela Veloso of Sugarpod Naturals, maker of Go-Lacta malunggay. She has a rich knowledge and appreciation for this helpful herb, and after listening to her we think you will too!
