Dear Lactation Consultant,
I am 6 weeks away from having my first child. I am a black woman age 26, and I am starting to develop some milk I guess, because my breasts are swelling a little now and leaking just a little, is that normal to start developing milk at this point in my pregnancy? How much milk should I be developing between now and my babies birth?

Sex and Parenthood

How important is sex to a marriage? Sex seems to be the emotional barometer for most marriages. Not in the sense that the more sex the better the marriage, but in the way couples can discuss openly and with concern for each other their feelings about the intimacy in their relationship.
