Role of your endorphins during labour and birth

Do you know about the role of your hormones during labour?

Did you feel a euphoric high after birth?

Endorphins are the body’s natural pain relievers. Powerful naturally-occurring opiates.

Beta-endorphin levels peak at birth and allow a woman to deal with the intensity of the experience and enter an altered state of consciousness.

Beta-endorphins are believed to be an incredible 20-50 times stronger than morphine and continue to have an important role after birth in breastfeeding and bonding with baby.

Isn’t the body incredible!

If you don’t know about the complex role of hormones during labour, this is a great area to do some research in. Learning about oxytocin, beta-endorphins, adrenaline and more can help you understand the amazing way your body is built to give birth.

The Hypnobirth Australia Positive Birth course covers exactly this and most importantly gives you and your birth partner proven tools and techniques to aid the release of these hormones and help the birthing process.
