In this episode, we discuss how your breasts change during pregnancy and after you have your baby. Female breasts have a particular function, and that is to produce milk for your baby. Your breasts and nipples are also an erogenous zone. They can play a part in arousal, and nipple stimulation can even induce labor. Breasts are much more complicated than we give them credit for and play a critical role for newborns. I know you are dealing with a lot of physical and emotional changes during your pregnancy. It can be overwhelming. Hopefully, understanding why these changes are taking place can help you have some compassion for your body’s hard work in preparing for your baby.
