Herbal Remedies for Insufficient Lactation
When the supply of breast milk for a nursing baby is inadequate, compounds called galactagogues, which stimulate the flow of milk, are used to increase the flow of milk. Insufficient lactation can be due to protein deficiency, anemia, or stress and tension.
An herbal program can include galactagogues or relaxing herbs when appropriate.
