Production of breast milk is influenced by several factors, i.e., oxytocin hormone, prolactin hormone, prolactin reflex, and let-down reflex. During the breastfeeding process, when the baby sucks the nipple, two reflexes occur simultaneously; prolactin reflex stimulating breast milk production, and letdown reflex stimulating milk ejection. This study intends to identify the factors contributing to breast milk production in mothers with sectio caesarean labor in Gorontalo city. It employed a descriptive-analytical design with the cross-sectioal approach and one-time variable measurement. The research was conducted by the help of three associates in three months, starting from September to November. Moreover, 30 mothers with sectio caesarean labor in Aloei Saboe Hospital and Sitti Khadidjah Hospital in Gorontalo city were selected as the research samples.
