ObGyn prolactin and oxytocin query!!

" After labor, a precipitous ↓ in estrogen and progesterone relieves the down-regulation of the prolactin receptor → prolactin induces lactation."


i read this in one of the banks... guys is this correct???? is it not that the prolactin causes milk production and oxytocin causes ejection??? plz xplain
