Breastfeeding Without Birthing: Breastfeeding for Mothers Through Adoption, Surrogacy, or Foster Care

Breastfeeding is important for all mothers and babies, even when (and possibly especially when) the baby arrives from another mother's womb. Increasingly, mothers through adoption, surrogacy, and foster care are interested in nursing their babies. By providing support and helpful information, lactation professionals can play a key role in breastfeeding success for these special dyads. Breastfeeding without birthing mothers may need help latching their babies and/or inducing lactation. Specific tools for latching and protocols for inducing lactation will be presented. Many of these mothers will also need support in supplementing their milk production. Adoptive, intended, and foster mothers can successfully nurse their babies with good support and by approaching breastfeeding based on their own individual values and circumstances.

This lecture is also offered as part of our Breastfeeding Education Bundle #2 lecture pack.
