Why labor is so important to make the transition for you and your baby naturally.

Endorphins are chemicals produced naturally by the nervous system to cope with pain or stress. They are often called "feel-good" chemicals because they can act as a pain reliever and happiness booster.

Endorphin levels increase toward the end of pregnancy. And again increase during birth to relieve pain, create a state of euphoria after birth and to promote mother-baby bonding.

Endorphin levels are their highest just after birth, and it takes two weeks after birth for endorphin levels in the body to return to normal.

Endorphin levels are highest during vaginal deliveries in unmedicated birthers.

They are lower in birthers who have a cesarean section after laboring on their own for some time and even lower in birthers who have a cesarean without experiencing labor.

This says it perfectly, You are the power through the pain.“this is MY why:
why would you do an unmedicated birth?
i get asked this question all the time
you could ask the same about a marathon?
why would you put yourself through that pain?
for me? i wanna see what i’m capable of.
it a challenge.
it’s a spiritual journey
it’s empowering.
i will train
i will feel like it’s too much at some parts
i will conquer mental and physical obstacles
and just when i think i can’t go any farther.
i do.”

So many great memories of watching men transforming to dads..

The Warrior Within Birth Services
Dads, we see you. Because it’s not just her birth story…it’s your birth story too.

We see the worry in your eyes, we see the strength in your arms, and we’re continually moved by the gentleness of your love. We watch you hold hands, catch babies, pray for miracles, pace halls, jump in birth tubs, apply counter-pressure, cut cords, and melt into a puddle as soon as you hold your child in your arms.

Thank you for all that you do. This is what being a man looks like…this is what fatherhood looks like. And it’s beautiful.

You hear about people telling you about that "moment". Time stands still and you fall instantly in love right? Wrong... well, sometimes... it definitely happens like that for some people, but sometimes you need to FALL in love with your baby over the course of days, weeks, or months! Just like any other person!

Now this wrinkly little baby is relying on you, you are tired and probably went through quite a journey to bring them earth-side, it is okay if you love your baby, but need time to fall IN LOVE with your baby! You are tired, you are recovering from birth, you are meeting this new person you know nothing about!

Don't sweat it, it will happen!
