Re: Can I do anything to increase my supply during pregnancy?

I do know docs will sometime offer Reglan or Domperidone during pregnancy to help maintain a supply, but it is usually because of a really important reason, likeyour baby can't tolerate formulas or has a severe health issue. Otherwise many docs will recommend formula so you and the baby are not exposed to too many medications. It can be hard to find a care provider who sees the benefit of breastfeeding over the convenience of formula, in a situation like this, regardless of what the evidence shows us of the safety of a med during pregnancy.
