Hope you are doing well. No there isn't any problem with you and it is not because of blood loss during an operation. It usually happens when your child doesn't start feeding within the first week or your child did not latch on to it,hormonal problems,using hormonal birth control and certain medications.Also some women may not have enough milk making ducts. However there is nothing to worry. Try adding these foods to the diet and you should see a change. -Whole grains -Garlic -Green leafy veggies -Ginger -Fenugreek seeds or methi -Nuts and seeds -Oats -Barley -Fennel seeds (Saunf) -Cumin seeds -Star anise seeds (badiyan ka phool) -Sesame seeds -Turmeric Drumsticks -Carrots -Black sesame seeds -Salmon fish -Sweet potato -basil or tulsi
