What an opportunity to hear from a medical professional who has brought in milk for her adopted baby. Deziray's expertise as a physician's assistant gave her added confidence in using a medical approach to inducing lactation. For her, that worked really, really wonderfully. She actually had a surplus of milk for her baby that she was able to donate her extra ounces to a friend unable to nurse due to cancer and to several other adoptive families. This degree of milk production is not typical for parents inducing lactation or relactating, but it certainly is exciting to know it is possible!
