Frequently asked questions
>No. Premama does not recommend taking Premama Lactation Support while pregnant. The ingredients Fenugreek, Red Raspberry Leaf Powder and Blessed Thistle are not deemed safe for pregnancy by the National Institute of Health.
Fenugreek is a plant that belongs to the pea family. The seed produced by this plant is commonly used in cooking and as an herbal remedy. Historically, Fenugreek has been used to induce childbirth. Although there has been little research into this claim, the National Institute of Health recommends that women "use caution" if consuming the herb while pregnant. However, Fenugreek is also commonly used to induce breastmilk production. It is completely safe to consume while lactating.
Blessed thistle is a galactagogue, taken to enhance breast milk supply. It works best when combined with fenugreek and fennel seed. For the best results, breastfeed more often or pump after or between feedings while you're taking this herb. Blessed thistle, or any herb, is more likely to work when there's an increase in breast stimulation. Even though it is considered safe to use while you're breastfeeding, blessed thistle should not be taken during pregnancy. Blessed thistle is a uterine stimulant that can cause contractions.
A mother's breast milk is nature's way of providing nutrients to your baby. Premama Lactation can't even compete with what you can do yourself! The goal of Premama Lactation is instead to enhance what your body naturally makes with Vitamin D3 and Calcium. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, "…breast milk alone does not provide infants with an adequate intake of vitamin D." Breast milk contains only 25 IU of Vitamin D, while the recommended intake for infants is 400 IU. Premama Lactation contains 800 IU of Vitamin D3 to help your baby meet this requirement. Folic Acid and Calcium also help fortify breast milk to ensure that your newborn has all that it needs to grow up healthy and strong.
Premama Lactation contains a proprietary blend of special herbs called galactagogues: blessed thistle, fennel seed, fenugreek, and red raspberry leaf powder. Galactagogues are herbs that are known for increasing breast milk production. Researchers found that lactating mothers who took galactagogue supplements in moderation had to supplement with formula less often than mothers that took a placebo, and their babies tended to gain more weight.
