I am a 27-year-old married woman. Recently me and my husband took the decision to adopt a baby and we have started with the formalities of it. But I wanted to know if I will be able to breastfeed my baby even though I will be an adoptive mother? Please answer my query. Answered by our expert Effath Yasmin an International Board Certified lactation Consultant. I have helped many adoptive mothers to start lactating. The simple mechanism is to stimulate your breasts. A biological mother will be able to make milk in her breasts by stimulation which the baby does.
