Nursing and a csection

I'm getting ready to have my second csection tomorrow. Last time I did go thru labor, but due to complications, i had a csection.  This time around, we decided it would be best to just do a csection, and while I'm a bit nervous, I'm also wondering how that will affect my milk production.

I have had two C-Sections and was able to breast feed fine. I heard some women make less milk which I prob did but there are some things you cando to increase your milk pproduction. I would talk to the lactating specialist. You should be fine. Best of luck to you

Thanks, I've been leaking a little all thru my pregnancy, so I'm hoping that's a good sign.

I just had my third baby via c-section and haven't had a problem being able to breastfeed with any of them. Make sure they know you want to breastfeed  and get baby to breast as soon as you can.

I've had 2 c-sections and exclusively breastfed both my kids no problem, my milk supply was great, had so much I had to freeze what they weren't eating bc I had to pump.
