picGalactagogues to Increase Milk Production

The term "galactagogue" means any substance that is known to increase milk production or milk ejections. Herbs have been used in almost every known culture for this purpose. There are also prescription medications that increase milk production.

We urge you to thoroughly research any galactagogue mentioned on this site and advise your doctor if you decide to take any of them to increase your milk production.

For information about galactagenic foods, visit Hilary Jacobson's wonderful site.
