Answer: Hi, Thank you for your enquiry. Colostrum is present in your breasts from around 18 weeks and some women do leak this colostrum. This is no sign that labour is going to start soon. You can rub the colostrum into your nipples and this helps prepare them for breast feeding. Best wishes, Alex.
