    How to have a mindful birth

    You may have heard that oxytocin is the hormone we want to have flowing around the body during labour. It helps the natural process of birth along. But do you know how to actively promote oxytocin besides just trying to relax? In the midst of facing unknown challenges in labour, it is very normal to feel the emotions and sensations associated with a loss of control.
