Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) and Breastfeeding

Dr. Rashidi - Another question was about breastfeeding. We have done a lot of research on this, and it’s fine even for pregnant women. Sometimes actually, doctors start with that. We haven't seen any issues with the breastfeeding, although there is not a study. But what we've found in the literature, it is okay with the breastfeeding moms. I don't know if anybody else has seen anything

Linda Elsegood - There are several presentations by Dr Phil Boyle, who has a fertility clinic, and he uses it to help the women get pregnant. A lot of these women have had multiple miscarriages in the past, and he's found that the mums do really well throughout pregnancy. If they're likely to have a Caesarean, he'll stop the LDN prior to that. And they take it breastfeeding, and the feedback he's had from the babies that have come back when he's done follow-up checks, is that the babies seem a really good weight, they have less chance of having antibiotics, and they're more contented. So the mums are really really happy that they have a contented baby.  As I say, he does use it to help women to get pregnant right the way through ,and those videos of his presentations are on the website, if you put in the search “Dr Phil Boyle” they will come up
