Can I breastfeed after being exposed to x-ray radiation?

Cody Miles | July 4, 2018

Yes, it is perfectly safe for a breastfeeding mother to perform, or receive any kind of X-ray procedure. X-ray radiation can kill living cells, but this does not affect the milk, nor does it expose the baby to any type of radiation. An x-ray machine only presents a hazard when it is energized, once the machine is turned off, a human being will not store, or emit ionizing radiation.
