The Universe is made
of rhythm, everything in the Universe moves and vibrates in
different rhythms. One of the characteristics of the
physiological birth is also its rhythmic nature, acceleration
and deceleration, of increase and decrease intensity of the
uterine contractions, like the rhythmic waves of an ocean.
This rhythm is determined by internal and external factors
that influence the mother and her baby. It is therefore
individual and unpredictable.
During labor, three hormones are released: oxytocin that is responsible for contractions, endorphins that are a natural anesthetic in the body, and adrenaline that is released primarily by cold and fear. That's why we need to help the woman's body to produce more oxytocin and endorphin and less adrenaline.
Respecting this natural
instinct, the mother can also resort to her own feminine nature,
instincts, and intuition, with companions who should also know how
to reinforce her confidence and love instead of receiving external
stimuli that reinforce the mother’s rational side, linked to the
The pain that accompanies
the rhythm of birth is a powerful guide throughout labor stages in
the process of opening her body to the birth of the baby, and
during the time of delivery, assisting the mother by sending alarm
signals to her body if something is not quite as it should.
The body of the expectant
mother acts instinctively to the pain but can also be influenced
by the woman who, aided by breathing and freedom of movement, can
provide a more adequate response to her protection and the
protection of her baby.
The mother can help
herself by reducing her stress levels, returning to calmness and
serenity after each wave of contractions, also providing
tranquility to her baby, and relieving her own pain. The moments
of pause between contractions are as important as their active
rhythm, giving the woman also the opportunity to recover and rest.
After the birth of the
baby the woman experiences intense feelings of ecstasy and
happiness of the high levels of endorphins in her body, receiving
her baby and increasing her unconditional love. These natural
hormones will help both mother and abby to reinforce their
intimate bond and connection for life.
After birth, between 5 to 10 seconds or up to 30 minutes to one hour later, it follows the expulsion of the placenta and the membranes forming the amniotic sac. The uterus contracts one last time and empties itself, thus beginning the experience of maternity, care and dedication to her baby.
Who am I?
Hi! I am Susana, I am a prenatal educator and a yoga teacher. In my daily life, if I am not with my 3 kids, I a serve and give support to the needs of new mothers and their babies.

I am also the author of the book Yoga and Motherhood (Yoga e Maternidade – released in Portuguese), a member of the APPPAH (Association for Prenatal and Perinatal Psychology and Health) and President of the Norwegian Association of Prenatal Education.
