Breastfeeding after C section?

I never had a c section, so I have no idea.
How does your body know to let the milk down, if you don't go through labor?

  • They may to help increase it but as for making it come I've heard of women who unfortunately had it come down in the middle of intimate time with their husbands, lol. (gross!)
    I do believe the contractions help to produce the marconum though (the really thick stuff that helps babies immune systems)

  • Its not going through labor that tells your body when its time. Its the pregnancy itself, and then the baby suckling.

  • I thought the uterine contractions made the body produce the chemical that made the milk come????
