Document Summary

Pregnancy and birth and r unning a marathon. Myoepithelial muscle cells when cells contract squeeze milk out on alveoli into milk ducts. Estrogen and progesterone inhibit action of prolactin in milk secreting cells. Ota acts on myoepithelial cells in milk duct to nipple. Mechanoreceptors in nipple activated results in neuro-endocrine response. Production of milk is only part of process milk must be transported to site of production in alveoli to ducts to nipple = milk ejection reflex and controlled by ot. Ot secretion from maternal pituitary acts in myoepithelial cell to milk ejection. In most mothers milk ejection reflex highly response cry and baby smells activates process. I t is important to provide relaxing env. to nursing mothers to occur optimal ejection of milk www. notesolution. com. 180"s epidemiological work began to show correlation of birthwt. Low birth wt. higher risk of developing cvd. Rebound effect in 9. 5 lbs diabetic mothers high glucose levels inc. risk factors for cvd.
