Breast cancer and breastfeeding

This information came from a tag on Twitter at the weekend from a mum newly diagnosed with cancer weaning her baby from the breast prior to starting chemo. Hard enough I know but after the surgery she had been prescribed domperidone to control nausea – it stimulates milk production and no one seemed to know or have thought about this. She was prescribed ondansetron instead but only after providing her team with the information about domperidone.

I havent included lots of facts about the drugs as the data can change with research but it contains some of the things I have heard from mothers over the years and some sources of support.

If you need more information please contact me. I will do all I can to support your journey as cancer has raised its ugly head too often in my own family.
