In brief: Ask your OB-GYN if

(s)he has seen any success with the regimen of daily hormones & nipple stimulation required.
I must admit i've not seen any success in 36 years of practice, though i've had some adoptive parents attempt it. Another option used by lactation specialists is a set-up in which a small tube attached to a bottle is taped to the breasts, ending beside the nipples, so mom experiences nursing.
