Re: lactation post-HELLP?

I do not think there are "clear medical" complications for the mother associated with lactation. Most of the drugs she might be receiving would be compatible with breast feeding - but those used should be assessed. The baby will benefit from breast feeding.

This may be resolved tomorrow at 37 weeks gestation when a diagnosis of mild gestational hypertension-preeclampsia is best served by delivery, not carrying the pregnancy further (ACOG recommendations from its Task Force on Hypertensive Complications of Pregnancy).
