When a woman’s body is preparing for birth she will have a rise in energy- and then a drop in energy. They have found the baby produces a hormone which sends a message to the mom to start the dominoe effect of 20-25 different hormones which moves a woman through birth.
The father also has a hormonal connection to birth, he will have an increase of over 10 hormones- these hormones are protection hormones he will experience an increase of energy and desire to keep the mother safe- this is why dad’s must practice relaxation techniques as well because the fight or flight scenario will kick in.
Now a woman who is close to the pregnant mama will also have close to 20 hormones release- the doula, friend, or mother will feel intuitively connected to the birthing mother. When a client hires me after completing my HypnoBirthing class I set my intention that I love with all my heart this family. By doing that I feel spiritually connected and will notice myself nesting or feeling those hormones shift and change in my body.
This week I have been frantically painting room after room while quietly sending prays of peace and calm to my client who is now preparing to meet her baby today.
