The Magic Hour

April 16, 2019

😍Those little tiny eyes lovingly looking up to meet her Mummy. Those glorious moments of skin to skin as you watch in awe at each breath, each eye blink, each twitch of their tiny little fingers 💗

The magic hour after birth is the optimum time to bond with baby if possible. This is a great time to breastfeed (your choice) and that loving surge of oxytocin is going to help you not only with breastfeeding but also when birthing the placenta. You may choose or be offered the injection to have a managed 3rd stage. This is something I recommend you research in order to make an informed decision.

 

You can use your hypnobirthing techniques here just as you did moments ago. Use your breathing, make sure the room is still quiet, relaxed, dimly lit and play your favourite relaxing music. We often forget about the 3rd stage and all the hustle bustle and excitement begins. Have a little think and include this in your birth preferences!
