Tubes tied and breastfeeding?

After we have our 3rd baby, I was thinking of getting my tubes tied.  I was wondering what kind of effect it would have on breastfeeding if any?  I am not even pregnant with baby #3 yet just looking to the future!

None.

The only effect it may have is that you may not be able to breastfeed in the golden first hour after birth.

I had a c/s and a tubal ligation with my twins. I did have some problems but that was due to nipple confusion, not the surgeries.

Any information we missed?

Supply will be fine. The only issue is what would normally come with a surgery. And that's beaten by refusing bottles, and nursing as soon as possible after birth. That is, if you're having a c-sec and then a tubal. If not...have HUBBY get snipped. Less risk.
