  • Bone marrow donation while breastfeeding

    Good morning,
    I have a patient who can be a bone marrow donor (has been found to be a match). As far as I know drugs used during the procedure are considered safe after mother is conscious, but her doctor from the transplantology center is concerned about the drug given earlier to stimulate stem cells growth. Is the drug safe during breastfeeding? Does the loss of stem cells after the donation effect lactation and could in any way effect the baby? I wolud be gratefull for any information on this topic.
    Best Regards,
    Karolina Morze
