  • Is it safe to use fenugreek & Fennel tea with daily inohep s/c injections

    Mother is 18 post days post-natal and taking daily s/c inohep injections for previous history of clot. Baby has almost regained birth weight. Is it safe to use Fenugreek and Fennel tea to increase milk supply when taking Inohep. Feeding position and latch have now been addressed and now feeding much better.

    I would not at all suggest the use of any herbal with a heparin-like product such as Innohep. There are hundreds of drug-drug interactions with heparin and like products. Some and probably many directly increase the effect of heparin and can lead to bleeding.
    FYI, its fine to continue breastfeeding, I'd just hold off on the fenugreek and fennel.
