better body chemistry 300



Quick summary of the science  :

Mother Nature knows it’s hard to get such a big head, down such a narrow passage – so she has built in, lots of biology to make it easier.  Unfortunately, a lot of modern birth practices, interfere with these mechanisms. 

The goal should be to be to access Mother Nature's birthing toolkit, as much as possible

You’re ready to deliver, the date is set …………… and then NOTHING. Maybe the NOTHING is a sign, your baby is not ready, some babies need 37 more days to develop
Mother Nature waits till the end, to add the finishing touches, these finishing touches ensure the baby makes the transition from the womb, to world, smoothly
A baby is considered “done” by the 39th week of a pregnancy and BIG enough to be born. But, when it comes to babies….bigger is better.
All things being equal, babies who experience skin-to-skin contact with Mom in the delivery room are more likely to be, breast feeders.
Mother Nature knows, babies need lots of iron, so she provides a little stash of iron deep inside the placenta, cutting the cord early, cuts baby’s supply.
Melatonin is normally associated with getting you ready for bed, not babies, but he is an important part of the delivery room team – assuming he shows up.
The idea of using temperature to relieve pain, is not new. Strategic use of hot and cold, is the recipe for a pain free-er birth…. It’s simple. It’s safe. It works.
When you’re lying in a bed, the birth canal becomes a hole………………… not a tunnel. Dropping through a hole is a lot easier, than wiggling through a tunnel.
When synthetic oxytocin is injected into the blood, it struggles to penetrate Mom’s brain – it needs to be in the brain, to prepare you for motherhood.
Babies who arrive by c-section, avoid the PAIN but GAIN a lot more bacteria which belong to the Firmicutes family. And these are the “fat” bacteria.
You’re going to find it easier to get the job done, if you’re properly fuelled and it won’t do you any harm, so pack a protein shake in your labour bag.
Manufacturers proudly proclaim that box of milk you’re buying on the supermarket shelf is germ free, but germ free is not the way Mother Nature serves it up.
