Gail will share her insights and research findings on the hormonal states of mother and baby and the interaction that occurs during Human Bonding in the First Hour after birth.
She will show how we can facilitate this essential process by making simple alterations in common birth practices. Gail’s teaching on this subject makes it a fascinating class.
Her insights can help you improve your outcomes: higher apgars, oxygen sats and blood sugars for babies; faster recovery for mothers, successful breastfeeding; and a stronger maternal/child relationship.
The class was recorded on Midwifery Today Conference. Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. April 23–27, 2014
