Why Labor is Good for Babies

Here's something you don't hear everyday, labor is actually good for babies. I ran across this article "Why Labor is Good for Babies" on About.com.

It lists five positive results of babies who successfully go through the labor process:

1. It helps with breathing after birth
2. It increases the babies blood flow
3. It increases the energy supply
4. It encourages bonding with the mother (dad)
5. It increases immunity

Take look at the article in full. It's completely fascinating!

Happy gestating and birthing!
