Hi Lovely Mothering Readers!
This is Aviva Romm here. For those of you who don't know me, I am homebirth midwife x 25+ years, an award winning herbalist and author, and a Yale trained medical doc. Oh, and most important: A mom to 4 now grown homeborn, homeschooled kiddos. I've known Mothering Magazine since it was a baby!
Chamomile: totally safe during breastfeeding and in fact, traditionally used to help momma relax, which is great for let-down. No specific breast-milk building qualities. Even up to several cups/day as a tea is fine, and it can be used in tincture form for tension, anxiety, IBS, and sleep problems.
Wishing you abundant health!
Aviva Romm, MD
