In brief: Breast pumps, lactai

In non-pregnant women who are adopting a newborn, a combination of pumping, prolactin and a galactologue, such as domperidone, an orphan drug, will result in lactation after a few weeks.
This should be done under the supervision of a physician who is a breastfeeding expert and follow one of the available protocols.
