Hypnosis makes you feel the happiness of motherhood

On mother's happiness just recently some, partly very cynical books have been written, which are basically mainly concerned with the political dimensions of motherhood. That's not what this is about. This is about motherly love and the associated happiness that supposedly occurs as soon as a mother holds her fragrant infant in her arms. Almost every woman gives birth to her first child with this expectation, and almost every woman is disappointed. Because just like any love, the love for your own child must first grow. Immediately after the birth, you probably feel mostly relief and emotion. There is wonder, pride and fascination and in healthy people quite instantly an overwhelming urge to protect the helpless being. That's what our hormones are for, that's what the infant schema is for, that's what the special baby smell is designed for. However, too much "mother love at first sight" is not provided by evolution. After all, in the past, many babies had not survived the first days and weeks. It only sets in over time. It grows very slowly, while you protect your child and give it all the care it needs to become big, strong, healthy and independent.
