Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Lactation induction is an attempt by a woman who is not breastfeeding (after pregnancy) but plans to increase milk production and breastfeeding. Induction of breast milk can be done by productive women who are not breastfeeding, but want to breastfeed babies 0-6 months or more for certain reasons, such as adopting a child. Basically, the induction of breastfeeding is to do hormonal stimulation to increase the production of the hormone prolactin, which prolactin hormone plays a major role in the production of breast milk and breastfeeding.
So that the stimulation of the production of the hormone prolactin can be done in various ways:
1. do breast stimulation directly
2. provide stimulation by using ASI pumps
3. drugs to stimulate milk production
4. direct breastfeeding, although in the early stages breast milk has not come out
Whereas the purpose of lactation induction is:
1. increasing the closeness and emotional relationship between mother and child
2. meet the nutritional needs of infants
To increase the success of lactation induction, it is recommended that the process to increase milk production or the initial process of lactation induction begin some time before the baby to be adopted is born, before adopting the child or before the breastfeeding process begins, so that when breastfeeding, breastfeeding is expected to go well. Even if there are obstacles in early breastfeeding, then some other efforts can be made, such as giving breast milk to the pump for babies.
The process before breastfeeding in the human milk industry is very necessary, because this process is controlled approaching like a woman in pregnancy and in labor, so that the production of the hormone prolactin is better to support the breastfeeding process. Therefore, you should advise your aunt to consult an obstetrician or consult at poly lactation for guidance and supervision in preparing for the induction of lactation and approaching breastfeeding. This is done to get better benefits in providing breast milk in the process of induction of breast milk. Communicating and continuing the doctor's plan will get a better evaluation for this purpose.
However, however, you need support from your own aunt regarding the process of induction of breast milk, so that this process can work well, such as:
1. avoid stress
2. optimistic and positive thinking
3. good nutrition
4. strong will
Although in general the medicine that you mentioned is halal and can be consumed, but your aunt should not buy it independently. Thus, consultation is a good first step in the lactation induction process.
Thus the info we can convey.
