What is Mother of the Body?

Feeling the baby move even after delivery can have a very simple explanation: it is the mother of the body! Several older women speak of this condition that can even scare several parturients, because it is a very big belief in older people.

The mother of the body is explained scientifically by the return of the organs to their original places.

The mother of the body would theoretically be a being that lives inside the body during pregnancy and after delivery, will be looking for the child. Without finding her baby, she becomes impatient and persists in the search. This would explain feeling those movements that we usually feel with a trembling belly after delivery even for long periods.

This belief comes very strongly from the Amazon region, where the question of midwives is still very strong. In fact, I say that it is an old belief because it was known and cared for by midwives who gave birth to our grandmothers, great-grandmothers for some years. Where the culture of midwives is very strong, this is a law that is absolutely respected. The ritual to calm the mother’s body is indispensable after delivery. This is about placing the placenta on the womb of the woman who has just given birth , andiroba oil to massage the lower womb. After doing this ritual, still say a few words to calm the mother’s body and restore peace to her and the woman who just gave birth.

The truth is that the mother of the body would allow this woman to feel movements even as if she were pregnant. Women with the mother’s body active may feel as if the movements are being made by the baby, but this after delivery happens. The mother of the body moves a lot until years after delivery, this would be a reason for curiosity and concern for several women, who wonder what may be happening? The mother of the body by belief can also move out of place . It would cause pain in the abdomen if out of place, this displacement would be caused by the wrong force of the woman at the time of delivery, taking weight after delivery and also sudden falls in the guard. When the mother’s body moves, she would cause pain. In addition to feeling these pains, the woman who has just given birth would also feel uncomfortable and hooked.

Scientific Explanation for the Body Mother

In pregnancy several organs are relocated within the body. The stomach, intestine, heart and especially the uterus undergo immense changes in this process of generating new life. In addition, the woman starts to feel intense movements of her baby for a few months. The return of the organs and the reflexes that pregnancy brings after childbirth would be a good explanation for the involuntary movements that the woman who has just given birth feels. Despite being normal, it causes strangeness and discomfort. Sometimes it can also cause discomfort, such is the activity of Organs internal organs relocating. Imagine that it took them months to relocate and everything slowly. After pregnancy the movements become intense, since the body returns to normal within 6 months of birth.

And when the movements are felt even after some time, for example 1 year after delivery? This would be explained by the activity of the tubes and also by the movement of the uterus within the abdominal cavity. Now, after a pregnancy, he is bigger and can also have more space inside the abdomen.

The fact is that the mother of the body is a very strong belief, respected to the extreme by the ancients and even today it is taken as a tradition in some cultures. I don’t think it is entirely a belief, it is the way that people deal with the mother’s body daily to explain what happens to the body after childbirth. When in doubt, it costs nothing to try to calm the mother of the body, but from a scientific and contemporary point of view, this would be easily explained if you take into account how much the organism changes during pregnancy. As my mother says: “I don’t believe in witches, but that they exist, oh they exist!”

Taking advantage of the space, I want to tell a news to our mommy readers and who are thinking about having another baby in the future, or even if they have a friend who is trying to get pregnant. In partnership with Famivita, we have developed a line of specialized products for health and fertility. Among them are FamiFerti fertility vitamins, ViriFerti fertility vitamins, ovulation tests and the FamiGel fertility-friendly lubricating gel, which plays the role of mucus, increasing sperm mobility as well as increasing pleasure. You can find each of these products, as well as the tempting kit here in our online store .
