during pregnancy, when does your milk come?

Dr. Natarajan Raman

After childbirth: In the latter part of pregnancy, the woman's breasts make colostrum, a thick, yellowish fluid. At this stage, high levels of Progesterone inhibit milk production. At birth, prolactin levels remain high, while the delivery of the placenta results in a drop in progesterone, estrogen, and hpl levels. This abrupt withdrawal of Progesterone & presence of high prolactin levels stimulate milk production.
