Ask Lenore is an information resource for couples who are expanding their families via adoption, surrogacy, or traditional pregnancy as well as those who are experiencing infertility and/or recurrent miscarriage.

At Ask Lenore, we wholeheartedly support all mothers who decide to breastfeed their baby. We aim to provide you with information on proper breastfeeding techniques to help you nurture your intended, premature or adopted baby. For those facing infertility and recurrent miscarriage problems, Ask Lenore offers helpful advice on what prospective parents can do to address these problems.

Ask Lenore was created by Lenore Goldfarb, PhD, CCC, IBCLC, ALC, who is a Lactation Educator, International Board Certified Lactation Consultant, and co-author of the Newman-Goldfarb protocols for Induced Lactation®: The Guide for Maximizing Milk Supply together with Dr. Jack Newman, a renowned breastfeeding expert, who is a consultant on this site. Lenore’s own son Adam was born via gestational surrogacy in 1999 and was breastfed for 8 months. Read her story. Breastfeeding and adoptive breastfeeding are rewarding experiences. A gift that will last a lifetime.

In addition to the information you’ll find on Ask Lenore, we have message boards so you can discuss your concerns with others, as well as links to a wealth of other resources, other Web sites, information published in medical journals, and contact information for a host of healthcare professionals located across North America. And if you can’t find answers to your particular concerns, you can email us at [email protected] and [email protected].

We hope that you find this site useful.
