Lactogenesis: Milk production occurs during two stages during pregnancy. Stage I happens during the second haft of pregnancy and produce small amount of milk. Stage II happens after delivery marked by onset of copious milk production. Some women may have milk secretion during stage I. No need to squeeze it out. Hope it will help. Thanks and take care.
