In brief: Relaxation

Your body is producing the necessary hormones during pregnancy to prepare you for breastfeeding.
The most important thing is to relax and not stress about it. Teaching your baby the correct latch, breastfeeding early on (in delivery room if possible!) and breastfeeding frequenty (10-12 times daily) in the first couple of days will best prepare your breasts successful breastfeeding.
