Ugh, manual extraction of the placenta? I have heard that that is an awful experience. When a placenta comes out in many small fragments, it is possible that one fragment may get left behind. While that (hypothetical) fragment remains inside the uterus, the body often behaves as if it was still pregnant, which can reduce your milk supply or even prevent it from coming in. I would definitely see your obstetrician/gynecologist about this possibility.
