It is safe to take psyllium husk while you are nursing as long as you drink plenty of fluids. Psyllium husk is the outer coating of mucilage around the seed of the Plantago ovata plant, which is grown primarily in India. It is taken for its fiber benefits, which include improved digestive tract health and cholesterol levels.

Irregular or painful bowel movements, also called constipation, are a common part of the pregnancy experience. In fact, approximately 50 percent of women develop constipation at some point during pregnancy, according to the American Pregnancy Association. Adding psyllium husk, a form of soluble fiber, to your daily diet might help alleviate stomach discomfort caused by constipation, but pregnant women should discuss the safety of psyllium husk with a doctor before using this fiber supplement.
Overall Safety

When used as directed, psyllium husk supplements usually are safe during pregnancy or lactation. Before taking any new medication or supplement while you are pregnant, speak with your doctor.
