Birthing has perks beyond the miracle of life, which include - orgasm. According to a new DVD, non-medicated labor possibly can be climactic.
The documentary entitled "Orgasmic Childbirth" revealed that biologically speaking, birth can be a sexual experience.
The pleasures of birth allow for better mother-infant bonding. Orgasmic pleasures are a continuation of the act of conception itself. They're in the best interest of the baby, and an ideal starting point for healthy family relationships, reports Fox News.
Research conducted by Dr. Beverly Whipple in 1989, as well as others, indicates that orgasms can be induced in some women during childbirth.
Scientists believe that this happens because of pressure from the baby's head on its mother's all-important hypogastric and pelvic nerve systems.
These nerves play a part in a woman's ability to experience vaginal, cervical and G-spot orgasms.
While explaining orgasmic birth, OB-GYN Dr. Christiane Northrup said that as the baby moves through the birth canal, it actually stimulates all the pathways involved in sexual pleasure.
How does a woman experience such an orgasm? Strategies include - overcoming fears, recognizing that you are a sexual being throughout pregnancy, embracing the idea of over-the-top pleasure during childbirth and allowing yourself to be open to orgasm.
