Natural Birth May Build Bond Between Mother & Baby

Brain scans on 12 new mothers found that natural childbirth may strengthen the bond between mother and child. Scientists at Yale University think the contractions during natural childbirth trigger the release of oxytocin, known as the cuddling hormone, in the mother and form a closer attachment between mothers and their babies. Caesarean sections may not have the same effect, and could be linked to postpartum depression, scientists believe. The study was published in the Journal of Child Psychiatry and Psychology.
