1 doctor agrees

In brief: Not normal

Can develop from overstimulation of the nipples, medication side effects that increase prolactin levels, or a pituitary adenoma.

In brief: Yes

Adoptive moms have occasionally achieved this ability with the help of their OBGYN and lactation specialists.
It involves stimulating your body with hormones and educating you in the process. If this is your goal it is possible with help.
