Help!! Blessed thistle and fenugreek!!!!!

Hey ladies I have been taking fenugreek for a few weeks. I ran out and had my husband pick up more fenugreek along with blessed thistle to increase my milk supply(Supply is a huge issue with me) well now after looking blessed thistle up online again I see some places say its not safe to take while pregnant OR BFing. Is this true? Have any of you ladies used it to increase supply?

Re: Help!! Blessed thistle and fenugreek!!!!!

I don't know about blessed thistle, but when my sister was pregnant and her supply was dropping, she asked her CNM about fenugreek and was told it was NOT safe during pregnancy. Sorry. I know a lot of mamas go through a tough time bfing during pregnancy and experience nursing strikes and even early weaning. Hang in there!! Maybe try some lactation cookies? I'd definitely seek out an LC for more advice.

It's safe for breastfeeding but not pregnancy.
