I want to ask how to get breast milk to come out before it’s time to give birth? People say that breast milk comes out before it’s time to give birth, is that true?

Hello Yurni Waruwu, thank you for your question to HealthReplies.com

During pregnancy, a woman's body produces a hormone called prolactin. This hormone prolactin is a hormone that makes the breasts produce milk. Although this hormone is already produced and the amount continues to increase as the gestational age increases, there are other pregnancy hormones (such as progesterone) that prevent the breasts from responding to the hormone prolactin and prevent large amounts of milk from being produced and released before delivery. This hormone is produced by the placenta, so as long as the placenta is still attached to the uterus, it is likely that the breasts will not produce much milk or secrete milk.

This is especially true for women experiencing their first pregnancy. It usually takes up to 3-4 days for the breasts to produce large amounts of milk. In the second pregnancy and beyond, the breasts may already produce large amounts of milk a few days before delivery.

Releasing breast milk before delivery or after delivery makes no difference. Nothing is better or worse. In the first few days after giving birth, the breasts will secrete milk which is more yellowish in color and looks more concentrated. This form of breast milk is called colostrum. Colostrum contains many nutrients and antibodies which are very good for newborns, so it is very important to give it to your baby after you give birth. Don't throw away colostrum just because it looks "unlike milk" or looks like "soiled milk." Breast milk is the best food for babies, especially babies under 6 months and your body will produce milk according to your baby's needs.

That's all the information from me, I hope it's enough to answer
