In terms of hormones, SEX and CHILDBIRTH have a lot in common.
Sex and orgasms release OXYTOCIN at it’s highest.
Oxytocin is the LOVE HORMONE, also known as the bonding hormone.
This feeling of WELL-BEING enables to completely RELAX and engage in the act of love.
When a baby is made, it usually happens in this ACT OF LOVE and in the rush of love feelings and hormones. New life is created through love.
Of course, not all children come into being only through loving sex, and not all children come into the world completely in a pure aura of love. There is sexual rape, and also in childbirth and obstetrics unfortunately often fear, pain, interventions and even assault and violence.
In order for our children to be born in love, it takes more awareness and knowledge about birth!
We don’t just want to know about all the risks and complications that could occur during birth (and scare us), but most of all, what it takes and what we as birthing mothers and birthkeepers can do to make birth safe, easy and beautiful.
Nature, who wants us to reproduce, has intended that both making babies and giving birth to babies is an act of love and is associated with feeling good, even euphoric or ecstatic!
Birth is only possible with oxytocin
As unique and individual as every birth is: Every birth is only possible with oxytocin.
The love hormone makes our uterus contract, in turn moving our baby down and dilating our cervix and birthing our baby. The more our body is flooded with endogenous oxytocin, the smoother and faster our cervix can open and together with other released hormones like endorphins and cannabinioids, pain is reduced and a hormonal cocktail is mixed that creates JOY and POWER within our birthing body.
So we can truly say that
LOVE is what brings the baby in and
LOVE is what brings the baby out.
Birth is meant to be powerful, magical and beautiful. A fireworks display of positive emotions!
As a woman you have everything within you to give birth to your baby. And it’s so very important that you feel safe, loved and comfortable when you give birth. Similar to the intimate sexual act.
