Most new lactating mothers are prescribed medication in the first days to weeks postpartum. Often, safety information for lactating mothers is not accessed from lactation-specific sources, and unnecessary interruptions in breastfeeding are recommended. Why Breastfeeding for Pharmacy offers evidence-based guidance on how to access and apply pharmacologic principles and lactation-specific references to the service of lactating women.
