    I got mine from the pharmacy next to Citysuper in Times Square. See my blog about this: http://kiddietreasures.blogspot.com/...fenugreek.html

    Annerly also sell it. I started taking it and drinking Mothers Milk tea after i came home from the hospital. I don't think you should take it before the birth.

    So i should take it on the 5th day?

    Yes, it's not to be taken during pregnancy.

    You should be able to take it as soon as you give birth. Don't forget your milk won't come in till day 4-5 so I don't think it matters if you wait. I just didn't take it to the hospital with me which is why I didn't start till I got home, on day 5.

    Why don't you see how your milk supply is before you start taking it? You might not need it. I only took it to build up my milk supply again because I was not able to directly breastfeed my baby for almost a week and I couldn't conveniently pump while I was hospitalized. Once the milk supply stabilized, I stopped taking it.

    It's nice to know that you have galactagogues as a stand-by, but personally, I wouldn't take anything until I would really need to.
