Nope. Now, if they did something with the machine and gave you a dose of Xrays that killed you... well, that would be bad for your milk. Of course, you'd be dead so wou wouldn't be able to do much about it. **smile**

Quoting TTC2Long:

Your TAILBONE is close to your breast?? Ignore her. She doesn't know about basic anatomy, let alone bf.

Quoting 3grls1wildboy:

 she said its bc of radiation xray is for tail bone pain since birth ..shaid that area is so close to breast so she will get alot of radiation


 


Quoting maggiemom2000:


What!!! That is nonsense. You can BF right after the x-ray. Silly receptionist.

The receptionist has no right giving out medical advice. Yes you can breastfeed. The receptionist needs to be reported.
