My husband and I are expecting our fist child in November through surrogacy. I am unable to have children because I had my ovaries removed at 15 and a hysterectomy at 19. My question is, can I breastfeed? I contacted a lactation specialist and was told that I probably could with the use of medications and pumping for two months before the baby comes. I am all for the pumping but not too keen on the idea of taking medications, one of them being Yasmin.
If I were to just pump, would I be able to produce milk? I have never lactated before.
Any suggestions or feedback would be greatly appreciated!
