Has anyone used Goat's Rue to help them produce breastmilk for an adoptive baby?  I recently read online that this herb can be used for adoptive mom's that are inducing lactation.  For anyone who's used it, is there any side effects of this herb?  I can't find a whole lot of information about it in terms of breastfeeding, because most of the sites I saw that have it on there are for bust enhancement.

I have found this site incredibly helpful. The word you are looking for (to aid in your informational search) is galactagogues.

I had a bio-daughter, but low supply, and it helped a little but when I added goats rue. Maybe by 3oz a day or something.
