There’s a secret about childbirth that lots of pregnant mothers don’t know about and it’s all to do with how our bodies are wired and built. This applies to if it’s your first baby or your fifth.
Who knows about OXYTOCIN and
ADRENALINE and the effect it has on your birth?
Firstly let’s throw it back to the cave girl times where we would have been giving birth in caves or similar. If we felt relaxed and calm then our bodies would have felt safe to bring a baby into the world so labour would have started and progressed well thanks to the hormone oxytocin.
If let’s say a woolly mammoth rocked up in your birth cave then your body wouldn’t feel safe giving birth and your labour would stop. This is due to the wonderful nervous system we have going on that initiates the fight or flight response when there’s a perceived threat resulting in the release of adrenaline.
Yet, nowadays during birth this response is a massive nuisance as we don’t have woolly mammoths or sabre tooth tigers up in our birth caves. What we do have is our thoughts, fears and anxieties about birth and the pain that comes with it, which causes the same response.
So what do I do about this I hear you say??? Two things... First change the way you view birth.
Secondly, learn to RELAX. When in your days do you give yourself time to CHILL? If you don’t, teach yourself how. If you can’t relax now, how are you suppose to do it in labour??.
Whether it’s your first baby or your fifth, you can find out more about HOW to do these two things and WHY you should choose hypnobirthing when pregnant by following the link below ❤️
