Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We evaluated the beginning of lactogenesis and the milk quantity until the fifth post-delivery day, before discharge, in 10 primiparae and 11 pluriparae Gypsies, as compared to 12 primiparae and 11 pluriparae Italian women. The results showed that both in primiparae and in pluriparae Gypsies, the lactogenesis started significantly earlier and the milk quantity was significantly greater than in Italian women.
