Natural Biological Tools of the New Mother
Much of what defines best practices in motherhood is centered in tools that aren’t recognized as such. For example, as a mother, you’ve got a strong maternal instinct that initiates a level of compassion inside you at a core level that can push you to do more with yourself and your baby than you would have thought possible otherwise.
Parents of children tend to advance in their personal lives owing to associated necessity. A dad needs to get that raise so he can give the baby a better chance in life.
For moms, their very compassion is core to the transition, and can be leveraged toward better outcomes for the baby; and in ways that wouldn’t be possible except for that maternal transition.

You’re also more likely to have a strong immune system when you become pregnant, and afterward. Your body will physically “sync up” with certain needs of your baby. For example, when breastfeeding, you’ll find that your breasts augment in temperature to fit the needs of the baby.
Your mind, emotions, and body combine in a way much like instruments harmoniously playing together in a symphony. Mother’s love is more than just a feeling, it’s a very legitimate scientific phenomenon.
