“The Love Hormone”: Accessing Your Body’s Natural Bliss in Birth, Breastfeeding, & Beyond
Saturday, August 23rd at 3pm at Mamababy Boutique in the Group Space.
$10 – $20 Suggested Donation with no one turned away for lack of funds. Babes in arms welcome too!
Did you know the act of giving birth naturally is the height of the human body’s ability to release ecstasy inducing levels of the “love hormone” oxytocin? Orgasm is a step below birth on the spectrum of human experiences that release this amazing hormone. The step below orgasm is nipple stimulation (with or without breastfeeding & milk let down!).
The environmental, emotional, & physical factors that create the circumstances in which a person can surrender her ego & intellectual identity to enjoy an ecstatic orgasm also facilitates ecstatic empowered natural birth & breastfeeding. The release of intellectual & ego identity, feelings of safety, intimacy, & surrender are crucial to healthy & complete release of oxytocin. Relaxation, rhythm, & ritual all help stimulate it as well.In this offering, full spectrum doula Samantha Zipporah will offer a discussion, lecture, & experiential exercises exploring the human mind, body, & spirit during the release of oxytocin. Participants will leave with practical tips to support oxytocin release throughout the human experience, including but not limited to birth, breastfeeding, & sexuality.
Samantha Zipporah supports people through a full spectrum of experiences with sexual health & fertility as a full spectrum doula, revel rouser, & ovulation awareness afficionado. She has been attending birth since 2006, & studied midwifery with luminary Elizabeth Davis who literally wrote the book on Orgasmic Birth. She spent years as a peer mediator, sex-educator, & patient advocate at Planned Parenthood, & in 2011 created The Happy Hysteria Health Collective. In her work she hopes to inspire reverence & respect for the sacred cycles of nature within the human body, & believes the practical is radical: we can empower ourselves through education, discovery, and manifesting our own unique experience as sexual creatures.
