Oxytocin

Updated: Sep 26, 2019

Our body creates a beautiful cocktail 🍸of hormones whilst labouring. Oxcytocin is such a fundamental hormone in birth. Oxcytocin is heavily involved in human reproduction and breastfeeding; it stimulates the release of eggs from the overies; aids in the transportation of sperm; creates uterine contractions and initiates the 'let-down' reflex for breastfeeding🤱. It is released in high levels during labour.

When we mess with birth, we mess with oxytocin.
