I was wondering if any of you had ever taken any herbs with this or previous pregnancies? Or even afterwards!
I didn't with DD1, but then I read to help produce more breastmilk you could take Fenugreek and it would help. I did that with DD2 when I noticed my supply wasn't a lot (when pumping in the morning I would only get about 1 oz per breast when I had been getting about 4 per). Anyway, I never noticed a change in supply with that.
This time around, I've heard of red raspberry leaf and evening primrose oil to help bring on labor or strengthen the muscles to make labor go faster and even possibly for it to make your milk supply bigger.
I asked my dr about things like this at my last appt and all she could say was she doesn't recommend it nor does she deny using it. I've read some drs encourage it. Has anyone ever tried these things? I ask because I'm wondering about the red raspberry leaf since that's the one that I read was suppose to help with labor going faster and easier. I think I also read that was suppose to help bring up milk supply too. Anyway, any input?
