We have interviewed several adoptive mothers on the podcast, but Courtney is the first to have actually produced a surplus of milk. Whereas most mothers who induce lactation need to supplement their milk production, Courtney was able to donate 3000 ounces of the milk she produced by inducing lactation to anther adoptive mom! Breastfeeding has been such a positive and healing experience for Courtney that she is spreading information and support for adoptive breastfeeding through her new website. You'll hear more about Courtney's personal experience and her brand new website in this episode.
Sally is an adoptive mom gone lactation consultant, and she uses her personal experiences to guide her professional role with abundant wisdom and compassion. In this interview, Sally does a beautiful job helping adoptive parents and the professionals who support them to navigate through the particular emotional and logistical challenges adoptive parents may face with breastfeeding.
