Can I take OptiBac if I am pregnant or nursing?
Nearly all products in the OptiBac range are suitable for pregnancy or breastfeeding. However, pregnant or breastfeeding women should consult their doctor before taking 'Saccharomyces boulardii', or 'For travelling abroad' which contains Saccharomyces boulardii, as a precautionary measure.
Many nursing mothers take 'For babies & children' whilst breastfeeding. 'For babies & children' can be safely recommended for pregnant and nursing mothers who are looking for a live cultures supplement during this time.
