Where to ask? Breastfeeding and surrogacy

I've tried Googling but can't seem to find the phrasing that will narrow out the unrelated to my question. Point me in the right direction ladies?

I'm currently nursing my 8 month old and would like to continue to do so as long as she's interested. Our older DD went to 25 months and that's not our goal but whatever happens after a year I'd like to encourage.
Here's the question- I'm intending to be a surrogate for one of my best friends. We're doing the math and start meeting with the advisors (medical and legal) in a month but... I can't find any info on if I will be able to continue to nurse my LO while going through my portion of treatments. Her eggs so no stimulation of mine just suppression. I'd like to go into things having already projected the timing I want to stick to to get my minimum nursing months OR knowing we can start sooner while keeping up breastfeeding.

Anyone have a bit of info on this? Or know where I could ask?

idk about the meds, but i do know that often times mamas dry up or their LO's are not interested in nursing when their mama is pregnant again so that is a possibility you should consider as well.

Very true! ODD nursed through my pregnancy so I have hope I'm comfortable with her choosing to no longer nurse but don't want to deny her the chance because of something I'm doing that would make it unsafe. It sounds a bit silly but I consider my top half to still belong to her for a bit more. The rest of me is mine to "loan out"!
