Non-herbal Galactogogues


Non-herbal Galactagogues 


The word itself is a combination of the Greek terms "galact-" meaning milk, and "-ogogue" meaning leading to or promoting.


Note: Pump with Purpose supports the use of non-herbal galactogogues that are regularly found in food if desired. 


Galactagogue is a substance that increases milk supply. 


While a galactagogue won’t boost your milk supply on its own, and not at all if you aren’t nursing or pumping regularly, some women may find them helpful.


PWP Note: No galactagogue  replaces frequent, consistent emptying of the breasts with the right pump, flange, products, and schedule.
