Valérie Dupin is a Speaker of the First International Online Festival on Natural Birth 'Miracle in the Heart: Expecting.Giving Birth.Cognizing.' (December 7-21,2014).
The hormonal space induced by natural labour, opens a very special state for the mother to "let go" her baby: praying, reciting mantra (improvised as well !) can favorise the production of oxytocin and endorphines.
A flow of natural oxytocin! Creating a gentle, intimate environment.
- Warmth - Dim lights
- The mother own rythm
- Slow deep breathing
Inhibitors of natural oxytocin production!
For some women
- Feeling observed
- Other people anxiety
- Too much talking
can affect negatively the progression of their labour.
