Woman’s body is wise, we know it, we feel it. It is designed for natural birth due to her anatomy and the hormonal cocktail that work along woman and baby’s rhythm. Michel Odent, internationally recognised French obstetrician and great advocate of natural birth, named it «The Love Cocktail».
Labour and birth hormones, produced by mother and baby’s bodies, act as chemical messengers. Their teamwork conducts the labour orchestra, the changes required to facilitate a smooth and safe labour. Besides, these hormones prepare baby for the extrauterine life. Oxytocin, the «love hormone», is at its highest peak during the first encounter between mother and baby, the fall-in-love bonding that develops from birth and onward.
Would you like to know how it happens? What hormones take part in? And even more important… How natural birth can be facilitated?
If so, book your place in this free workshop where, along with María Gómez-Cabrero López, midwife at Titània-Tascó, you will discover the amazing world of hormones during labour and birth.
