i'm still cooking up baby no. 1 so have no experience personally of this, but i'm pretty certain that the birth (whenever it is) stimulates your body to produce milk. I have a friend who sadly lost her first at 20 and was induced with him, and she started producing milk after that, so i'm sure you will too. good luck tomorrow!!
No not at all! I was induced at 37 weeks with my son and I had SO much milk!!! The more the baby nurses the more your body will produce for milk. It also helps contract your uterus back down to pre-pregnancy size.(Which can be painful).
As for the milk, it takes a bit of time for the hind milk(the good fatty stuff) to come in...esp with your 1st baby. But the baby will get everything it needs from the colostrom that you produce at first. Just remember the MORE the baby nurses the MORE milk you produce!! Babies go through cluster feeds which means they non stop feed for a while....this generally occurs at 3,6,9 weeks and so on. Being induced early won't have any impact at all...
Once the placenta detaches, the hormone that is produced is what makes the milk start producing. Your milk will come in about 2-3 days after baby is born. Before that you produce colostrum. But no, being induced makes no diff.
