The First Hour Following Birth

I was reminded of this today and must share! Also, I’m a little ashamed that I haven’t posted more in the Childbirth section. Especially, when so many people I know are pregnant right now. Please forgive me for my late craft obsession which has left a lack of posts on this subject in it’s wake.

This is a great article by Dr. Michel Odent on The First Hour Following Birth. He talks about the release of Oxytocin and it’s role in the mother/baby bond. He also mentions some other great things along with the importance of not disturbing the birth process.

Also, I must tell you to check out http://www.wombecology.com. Really interesting site that will give you some insight into childbirth and labor from a physiological point of view.
