Will exercising affect my milk supply?” Let is get to know more about human milk production and the things to keep in a mind regarding exercise while a breastfeeding.

Human milk production is the result of two hormones. Protactinium and Oxycontin are the two hormones responsible for a regulating in the production and letting down of the milk. Protactinium is  called as in the milk-forming hormone and Oxycontin is the milk ejection hormone. As soon as the laboring, starts in the two hormones are released in a greater amounts from the pituitary gland.
