The hormones that govern the processes of labor, birth and breastfeeding possess a delicate synergy, referred to by the famous French obstetrician and author, Michel Odent as a “love cocktail.” Fear, trauma and anxiety inhibit these hormones. Doulas help to keep these stressors at bay in labor so that the body can do its thing. Job posting for doulas, doula scam warning, favorite resources and more! Read the newsletter.
