What does the evidence say? A Cochrane review of oral galactogogues for mothers of full term healthy infants

Time-frame: 60-75
CERP: yes

When the topic of galactogogues comes up, a commonly heard refrain is “there is no evidence that galactogogues work…” But that’s not true! The results of a Cochrane review that cast a world-wide net will be presented, along with insights about historical differences in the goals of studies and other interesting facts gleaned during the review process regarding. By the end of the session, the participant will be able to list four components of a model study (a better “mousetrap”), as well as 10 galactogogues that have been studied, and discuss the strength of the evidence.
