How does oxytocin help your child’s brain development?

Hormones are essential in our body system, they regulate a lot of our internal body functions. They control and coordinate our energy levels, growth, development, reproduction, and response to injury, stress, and environmental factors. The good news is that you can now activate chemicals in your child’s brain, such as oxytocin, the so-called “hormone of love” or the “cuddle hormone”. 🥰

Simply, cuddles, warm hugs, and affectionate human connection can trigger oxytocin production, having wonderful effects on you and your child! Oxytocin is released in response to labor, breastfeeding, and sexual activity, however, you can now boost it naturally with the joy of human connection to feel good, safe, and fulfilled! Don’t forget that early life experiences have a significant effect even in our adult life.

Feelings of comfort and safety in infants can last a lifetime! Warm physical contact makes our children less anxious. It is also delightful and satisfying for parents who benefit from the same.

Don’t miss any chance of warm cuddles and affectionate kisses with your littles! 🤗 Our psychologists, nutritionists and midwives are here to support you feel alive, with tons of energy to do what is best for yourself and your children. 😊
