Is There Anything that Can Be Done During Pregnancy to Ensure a Good Supply?

DD is weaned. We had a pretty rough time breastfeeding due to low supply. Even medication didn't help much. DD was supplemented the whole time and around 5 months PP what little supply I had dried up completely. Anyhow, I'm preggo again (fingers crossed for a sticky bean!) and I'm wondering if there is anything I can do while I'm preggo to help ensure a healthy supply this time around. I'm terrified that it is going to go the same way as last time. I of course eat healthy and keep my calorie intake up, but is there anything else I can do? Or am I just at the whim of my body on this one?

First congrats!


I understand taking Alfalfa while you are pregnant can help. There are a couple of mamas here that have have taken it I believe. I didn't take it while pregnant (I wish I had known I would have) but I have used it since my daughter was born and it has helped increase my supply.
