by on May 5, 2012

The side effects of whey protein on nursing mothers and pregnant women are not well documented. It is generally advised that women avoid this supplement if they are breastfeeding, pregnant or plan to become pregnant.

If whey protein powder is an important part of your diet, consult your doctor about whether you can safely continue using it throughout your pregnancy or while breastfeeding your infant.
