    Red face Fenugreek question...

    Good evening,

    Did anyone get information from the pediatrician on Fenugreek? I did some internet research and then called for a recommendation from our pediatrician. Basically I only got to talk to the NP who had no idea what it was even after I was reading her the information from the internet pages.
    So, she called the pediatrician and when she called me back she said he would not give me a recommendation either way (so neither positive or negative). NO HELP THERE..
    I was curious as to if anyone did get a recommendation from their pediatrician, if they know what fenugreek was ahead of time and basically what they said.

    Thank you!

    Hi AZjeep,

    Many moms find that an Internationally Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) is a good resource for information on Fenugreek. Many hospitals have IBCLCs on staff. There is a good chance that an IBCLC in your area would know of a doctor who is familiar with fenugreek whom you could consult with.

    HTH,

    You might also try looking for a certified herbalist and/or a pharmacist for assistance.

    I've been really suprised at how much my local CVS pharmacist knows about herbs!

    Another resource might be a local university with a med school. Often there's someone on staff who knows alot about herbal medicines!
