The Boob Report: How to Keep Your Breasts Pert - on MyBaba

Heather Porter is a contributing expert for and recently wrote an article on keeping breasts pert. Read the rest of the article here: 

What happens to your breasts during pregnancy?

Both the breast and nipple change during pregnancy, breast growth and tenderness can be one of the first signs of pregnancy. Breasts unfortunately succumb to gravity, so as we age they do not remain as pert as they once were, and after expanding in size during pregnancy, the weight increase pulls the breast down further. After birth when the milk comes in the breasts grow even more and it is at this time they will be the largest and the heaviest, possibly two to three sizes more than your normal state.

What happens to them if you breast feed?  I hear that they can be left looking empty.

You put on an extra pound of breast tissue and accumulated fat as the breast prepares for the onset of milk production. After feeding, the breasts do decrease in size, but they may not reduce back to exactly how they were before the nine month plus expansion! Some women can be left with less volume above the nipple and may even shrink down a cup size.
