Yup! In Harry Potter, the expansion of an object can be performed with a spell called ‘Engorgio’. After child birth, there is the Engorgio phase which is quickly followed by the ‘Crucio’ spell, ie the most excruciating pain known to man. This phase is what we dearly call the painful
chest phase. This pain is maddeningly uncomfortable.
This is caused by milk filling up in the chest and though it doesn’t happen to all women often all the time, it will happen to a majority of women out there, at least once. This results in hard and heavy breasts and this should be expected to happen within the first few weeks of delivery. It is not a bad thing per se, but it is something new mommies have to deal with till they finish breastfeeding, which might be a couple of months.
The good news is that it gets easier as the months progress. Experts say the easiest way to deal with this is to let the baby feed on demand.
