Reflexology - Breast Feeding Mother

This topic came up recently during my studies, and then bizzarely a breast feeding mother has volunteered to be a case study for me. I'm still in some confusion as to whether this is a contra indication to prevent a treatment or not. I am tempted to ask her to get her doctors permission, however, doctors have started charging for letters now. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Angie

Hi there I am reflxologist and support breastfeeding all o the time. I think that as long as you ensure your client drinks plenty of fluid post treatment then you should be OK although she should sign a disclaimer anyway when she completes her questionnaire as this is professional. Justine
