Pregnancy and BreastMilk(Please Help!)
hi all,
Just a quick question. i'll like to know when exaclty your breast start discharging milk during pregnancy. Some people say thier breast start secreting milk as early as 4 weeks into pregnancy. On the other hand, i have meet people who say they don't get breastmilk until during delivery.

I'll just like to know the opinion of people with similar experience in this forum.

Thanks

It varies from person to person. Milk secretion can start very early in some women, in others only after delivery.
