So many contacts recently about thrush and breastfeeding I have decided to record a presentation I have made many times over the years. I will in a few days record one with detailed prescribing information for doctors and pharmacists . A copy of the slides will go onto my website www.breastfeeding-and-medication.co.uk. Hope this helps everyone. I have found it necessary to leave several social media groups for my own sanity after reading threads where non evidence based practice seems to get perpetuated. This is my view after looking at thrush and breastfeeding for the last 20 years.

Tickets booked and I’m off to Belfast on 4th August. 3 sessions planned – need to do some work after a few months off for surgery and healing!
Saturday 6 October – I’m doing a workshop with my wonderful daughter Beth. May have to take turns holding baby Elodie
We know that the most common reason mums stop breastfeeding before they would otherwise choose is because they believe they don’t have enough breastmilk. In many cultures there a herbal remedies to increase milk supply. We have medicinal options available as well. What is the research behind the “magic wands”? Can any products cause harm rather than benefit? When should they be used and when is skilled breastfeeding support more important? Why is some populations is poor milk supply never a concern? Who is responsible for the perceived need to increase milk supply?
One of 13 conference recordings now available to watch at your convenience: “Breastfeeding and Medication: how to make an evidence based decisions on safety” with Dr. Wendy Jones, PhD, MSc.
