I'm due to give birth in three weeks and have had no lactation at all. I'm a little bit worried should I be?

Nope. Many women don't leak a drop before birth. I'm one of them.

Delivery of the placenta is what triggers what really counts... the milk after birth! Colostrum will still show, but may not be visible to you.

You're not supposed to :) Lactation is triggered by the separation of the placenta from the uterus. You still have one in there, so no milk for you yet! Leaking is different and some women do änd others don't. Has NO bearing on your ability to BF.

Yep! I never leaked one drop during either of my pregnancies but had plenty of milk after they were born.
