"The non-gestational mother in a same-sex relationship induced lactation so as to breastfeed her child. Using domperidone and frequent breast expression, she successfully established milk production adequate to exclusively breastfeed her child and took on the role of primary breastfeeder. The two women found challenges in negotiating shared breastfeeding and in the exhaustion attendant on feeding and expressing day and night while both maintained full breastmilk production.
This case illustrates the importance of expressing to establish and maintain a full induced milk supply, and the flexibility that lesbian couples may use in managing their reproductive lives. Both mothers in this relationship experienced breastfeeding as an important aspect of mothering, though it was not easy to co-parent in this way."[Résumé de l'auteur]
