"Oxytocin is known as the "Love Hormone", which is why it’s released during sex, orgasm, birth and breastfeeding.
Oxytocin will make you feel more affectionate and selfless, and its main function in labour is to bring on contractions.
Oxytocin reduces stress, calms you down and helps with pain during labour. Impressively, your baby will also produce oxytocin before and during labour. It also hangs around after birth too, helping you feel more relaxed, well-nourished and bonded with your baby. It helps with the let-down reflex during breastfeeding and protects you against postpartum haemorrhage." - nct.org.uk
Oxytocin is also released when cuddling up to a loved one, including your pet, making this a perfect gift for your other half, your friend or even just for yourself!
