What triggers the lactation?

Lactation (lactation) is regulated by two hormones – prolactin and oxytocin. Prolactin stimulates the production of milk and its release into the alveoli of the mammary gland. Oxytocin leads to contraction of the cells located around the alveolus, and in this way pushes the milk from them into the milk canals, all the way to the nipple opening. These hormones produce a pituitary gland, and their secretion is under the control of the hypothalamus.

Given that the hypothalamus is the center of the neuroendocrine system and that its nuclei engage numerous hormones and substances that stimulate or prevent the release of the pituitary hormone, it affects vegetative functions, emotional and affective behavior. Therefore, various physical, metabolic and psychic stimuli can block or enhance both the formation and secretion, and the release of breast milk.
