Where to easily buy fenugreek?

Hi, I need some help ladies! I recently delivered my last little girl on Oct. 3rd (I'll be sharing my story in the TTC/PG forum soon) but due to the need for a hysterectomy (uterus only - thank goodness) my milk supply is taking forever to come in. My lactation consultant said this is normal, since I had to have several units of blood during surgery. She suggested some prescription drugs I could take but I would prefer a natural herb instead. She suggested fenugreek. I looked in my local store, but didn't find any. where would I readily find this herb/capsule in a pharmacy or store rather than purchasing online? I'd love to get this stuff going in my system soon as my supply is low to nonexistant and baby Eden needs it! She's currently in the NICU for prematurity (lungs are having a tough time) and needs all the mama's milk she can get! thanks in advance for any help you can give me!

Re: Where to easily buy fenugreek?

I would look in a natural food store. I am not sure what you have available, but I have seen it at several different natural food stores in our area. Larger grocery stores that have a natural food section may also have it. Good luck mama!
Blessings to you and your little one!

I get my Fenugreek at GNC. Im sure they have it at any store that has an herb section (walmart) Try that along with Mothersmilk tea.

Exclamation Re: Where to easily buy fenugreek?

If you are looking for something to help with milk supply, there is a organic vegetarian capsule called "More Milk Plus" by motherlove, I would highly, highly, recommend this brand! The product works and it contains about 5 herbs one of them fenugreek, about $25 a bottle, but worth every penny. Please note you cannot take it while pregnant, it is contraidicated. Try this, this will work and it is all natural really hth,

I bought mine at RiteAid. They had Mother's Milk tea too and used to carry Ensure Healthy Mom bars. I guess I live in a breederific neighborhood, eh?

Re: Where to easily buy fenugreek?

I bought mine in a Natural Health store which sells herbs & such. Wasn't too expensive. I've also heard that Blessed Thistle works well (although haven't tried it myself).

VitaminShoppe!

Fenugreek and blessed thistle together work great. Marshmallow root doesn't do anything on its own but when combined with fenugreek and blessed thistle it works to increase the effects of those two herbs.

Motherlove tinctures are great. If you can't stomach the taste get some empty capsules and fill them (takes about 30 seconds). That's how I get it down

GOod luck and congratulations on baby Eden!
