The hormone of love in pregnancy, birth and beyond
With Dr Sarah Buckley
Dr Sarah Buckley brings her brilliant blend of science and wisdom to this evening talk for parents and professionals.
Based on her current PhD studies, Dr Buckley explains
- the oxytocin system and how it naturally promotes safety, ease and pleasure from pregnancy to labour, birth and postpartum for the entire birthing family.
- the impacts of common maternity-care interventions on this system
- how to address the hormonal gaps that interventions such as induction, epidurals and caesareans can cause
There will also be time for Q&A and discussion.
Copies of Dr Buckley’s book Gentle Birth, Gentle Mothering will be available for purchase, personally signed.
