          Abstract

          Breastfeeding confers a lot of benefits to both mother and child. Problems such as insufficient milk production may affect the mothers’ breastfeeding process and most mothers opt to consider on using galactagogue. We collected and analyzed questionnaire consists of demographic data and usage patterns of herbal galactagogue during lactating. To summarize, most mothers consume herbal galactagogue due to lack of milk production. A larger scale survey of herbal galactagogues used would be beneficial in future to the state of knowledge and clinical study on the most popular herbs.
