Hi dear it's good I too used it but I took it post delivery as prescribed by my doctor I don't know if it's okay to have pre as well. It's better to ask your doc once to be safe

Dr. Payal M Dr.Shilpitha Shanthappa pls sdvise

Dr. Payal M

they r granules to be had dissolved in milk. shatavari (sold by Zandu)is a galactagogue- to increase milk production. hence to be consumed once baby arrives. unless there is another type available..

thank you ladies..
currently I am in my 6th month of pregnancy.. shall I start taking it now or should I take it post delivery??

Sheeba Rizvi

Hi Sid, It's for milk production n as I told you I took it post delivery it will be better if you ask your doctor once if it's OK to take now as well. at this stage don't take anything without doctors consult even for cold or fever medicine. :)
