Oxytocin is released when you:
How to Reduce LABOR PAIN Naturally is just one topic i cover in my PregActive Birth Preparation course.
Oxytocin is also responsible for the contraction of breast tissue to aid in lactation after childbirth.
So yes, it's important and you want to help promote it's release.

3. Cuddling and feeling good with your partner
4. Regular exercise

Listen to my PregActive Podcast 'Natural Ways to Bring on Labor':
You might actually have higher endorphins towards the end of your pregnancy and that can continue to steadily rise through labor.
The 'fight or flight' response impacts the hormone cocktail that races through your body, and works against you when it comes to the optimal hormone cocktail for childbirth.
If you feel threatened or anxious in labor, adrenalin can be released which can actually slows the whole process down.
Keep Adrenalin low by:
1. Staying calm.
2. Being informed and prepared.
3. Feeling safe and confident with your birth setting and health care providers.
4. Feeling confident in YOU and your body's ability to birth your baby.
5. Being with people who provide comforting support and positive words.
6. This is a lot of information I know, but believe me when I say trust in the power of the hormones. They can get you through this birth, and you've never experienced anything like it.
