It's impossible to imagine a world without love.
Dr. Riley believes that we must honor undisturbed childbirth, for the experience to be natural without unnecessary medical intervention, procedures or medications. Birth that proceeds naturally permits love and devotion to fully envelop both mother and child.
Intervening in childbirth can lead to physiologic perturbations, specifically related to oxytocin, the "love hormone". When birth is left undisturbed, oxytocin floods the mother's bloodstream and that of her baby. When the mother is engaged in conversation or visually stimulated, her neocortex is activated and suppresses this biochemical process. Oxytocin promotes conception and healthy birth. Our world of increasing interventions is resulting in birthing generations without the flooding of oxytocin and thus not immersed in love. To change the world for the better we must start with birth.
We envision conception, birth, and death as the natural consequence of love, the creative force of the universe, which is a direct experience with the divine. In this world, we thrive through our co-creation with soil, life, planet, and the cosmos. -Beloved Holistics (Dr. Riley's practice)
