Hi Chrissy, thank you for your inquiry.

Yes, it is safe to breast-feed while pregnant.
The La Leche League International supports breast-feeding during pregnancy. Although many others, including professionals have other opinions.

You will need to eat adequate nutrition to support the nutritional needs of your unborn baby.

Some women find that their supply of breast milk decreases during their second trimester. You may need to supplement at this point if your baby isn't getting enough nourishment.
