Labor Medications: Oh yes, it affects breastfeeding.

by Laurie Chamberlin CD, ICCE, CLE

‘Will the pain medication I have in labor affect my baby?” asks my client Olivia with curious eyes. I think I know the answer she is hoping for and I don’t think I can give it to her. “Yes” I reply, to which I see a momentary flutter of disappointment cross her face. “Most medication reaches the baby in ten minutes.” At a lactation conference put on by the Breastfeeding Coalition of Placer County, Marsha Walker, RN, IBCLC says Fentanyl, a common pain medication used in labor, lasts about 2 hours in the mother and can last up to 13 hours in a baby. Babies should not be breastfed for 4 hours after administration. Often times mothers will receive more than one shot, that stacks up and may take a day or more for it to wear off in the baby.

Testimonial

I've been a client of Herb Lore for nearly 8 years, and have used their herbal products since they were introduced to me by my midwife when I was pregnant with my first child.  I value and trust their wisdom, knowledge and products implicitly.   Their obsession with product quality; their knowledge on every aspect of herbal medicine's intricacies, formulations, applications, contraindications - you name it, they know it or can find it!  I trust Herb Lore's unerring expertise and their high-quality products.  I am always assured at finding answers and solutions when I call Herb Lore, versus miles of red tape, run-arounds, side effects, and lack of positive results with conventional medicine.  I greatly appreciate the personal connection that they have taken the time to develop with me over the years.  Business isn't just about business; business isn't just about having a great product; business is about people.  Herb Lore always does a fabulous job of keeping a high level of service when working with their customers.  I feel valued and important because they put care, though and energy into my particular challenge.  Personalized service seemed to have been something of the past, but Herb Lore has brought it back!  Thank you so much!  D.P.
