  • Beyond Fenugreek: An Individualized Approach to Herbal Galactagogues (2 Hours)
    • 2 L-CERPs: Pharmacology & Toxicology
    • Description: While some clinicians might roll their eyes when ‘lactation cookies’ are mentioned we know foods and herbs have long been used to nourish the postpartum parent and enhance lactation. Some topics this talk aims to cover: Does nourishment matter when it comes to breastmilk quality or quantity? How can we approach galactogogues for lactating parents in an individualized way? How can clinicians evaluate evidence and determine safety regarding galactogogues? We know that parent coping with milk supply concerns are often desperate to ‘try anything’. Clinicians have an important role in helping families understand the risks and benefits of galactogogues. By helping parents identify resources and information around foods and herbs, we can help empower them to make informed choices.
  • Objectives:
    • Locate resources on galactogogues and herbal safety
    • Understand a personalized approach to selecting appropriate galactogogues
    • Understand the different ways that galactogogues support lactation
    • Understand why foods and herbs may be needed to support optimal lactation
