Birth Tip Time!
Why the should you masturbate in labour?! For a lot of different reasons! And here are the top five reasons you should be getting sexy to help bring your baby Earthside!
1- Hormones, hormones, hormones!
Masturbation builds up the hormones in your body that are responsible for getting those contractions going! More hormones = less pain = shorter labour = HELLO BABY!
2- It promotes privacy!
Did you know there is such a thing as the Sphincter Law? You know how it’s harder to pee or poo when someone is watching you? Same thing goes for baby having! The more privacy you have, the smoother and faster things will happen!
3- Slip and Slide!
For baby to slide on out things need to be nice and slippery, some Self Love can certainly help juicy things up a bit!
3- It makes labour more comfortable!
How? Masturbation releases pain relieving hormones so you can bliiisssss out!
If you remember the movie Major Pain, you will know that your brain finds it difficult to focus on more than one sensation at a time. The more pleasurable things you have to focus on, the less your brain will listen to any labour discomfort!
5- The freaking obvious!
Ummm, it feels freaking amazing!! Love got that baby in, love will bring that baby out!
So, what are you waiting for?!
Time to get sexy, Mama!
