You Are The Expert On Your Baby
As a mum who carries her baby you will come to learn that you are the expert on your child. You are equipped to understand every cry and meet every need. Your intuition is your greatest tool and it becomes stronger when you give birth.
All Mammalian females have maternal instincts but gestational hormones prime mothers to identify and respond to stimuli from her baby.
This is not limited to mothers who physically give birth and it is also not limited to females. Males experience a measurable spike in their levels of oxytocin, the hormone associated with maternal bonding, when they spend time in close contact with their babies and this exposure increases their own parental instincts.
