How to switch Oxytocin on.
So your 40 weeks and it's time to get this baby moving but there are no real signs of this happening yet.
Well, never fear Oxytocin has been happily releasing into your body since 32 weeks to 36 weeks from the help of your uterus. At 40 weeks your Oxytocin receptors are at their peak and will start those contractions going naturally, you need to do nothing really because your amazing body has got it covered.
Oxytocin is called the LOVE hormone and you can't over dose on it, in labour your body can't get over sensitized to it so its got you all the way so to speak.
But some natural ways to help your body bring it on a little stronger is to sit with good friends and family, laughing, talking and hugging, touch is so important and feeling safe in your environment is a must to keep it flowing.
Fear will slow or even turn this hormone off so that's why its so important to have the people and environment the way you want it when giving birth.
Of course Acupuncture is also a mighty fine tool to use to bring that hormone flowing into your veins.
