Breastfeeding and excersis Lock Rss

Hi,

Is it okay to go to the gym while you are breastfeeding?
I have been advised that it can affect your milk supply, is this true?

Hi,
Thank you for your enquiry. It is best that you inform the Gym that you are breast feeding and they can adapt a program for you. When you are breast feeding you do use more calories and if you exercise too strenuously, you may affect your supply. You need to also ensure that you drink plenty of water to replace lost fluids.
Best wishes,
Alex.
