Nature's feel good hormone and how it can benefit all mums-to-be

Meghan was recently under fire with negative press and twitter trolls when she was seen cradling her baby bump.  Fortunately she has not stopped her doing this, as it has many positive benefits for both mum and baby. 

Katharine recently shared details about these benefits with The Sun.  

"It is perfectly natural and even therapeutic for women to hold their bumps when pregnant," she told Fabulous Online.

"Mothers naturally talk to their babies as well. It is known that, after they are born, babies recognise their mothers’ and their fathers’ voices, and also songs that were played to them during pregnancy.

"Throughout pregnancy there is a two-way communication going on between mother and baby, and babies respond to touch and stroking.

"Stroking helps the mother feel good and, when she feels good, she produces the hormone oxytocin, sometimes called the hormone of calm or the hormone of love.

"Oxytocin triggers the release of endorphins, nature’s feel good hormone.

"It is also known that the mother’s natural hormones affect the baby, so the baby is benefiting from these positive hormones too."
