In surrogate pregnancies genetic parents have little opportunity for early bonding with their infants either prenatally (in utero) or during the immediate postnatal period. Procedures commonly used to induce lactation include both pharmacologic and nonpharmacologic methods often in combination. Studies reporting induced lactation are sparse due to the rarity of augmented lactation. Here we report a case of lactation induction following a surrogate pregnancy. Other methods that can be used to augment lactation are described below. We used metoclopramide in this case due to the success rates reported in previous studies and case reports. Additionally it is a well ...
