'Love Hormone' May Aid Women's Recovery After Childbirth
Date:1/3/2013

THURSDAY, Jan. 3 (HealthDay News) -- Chronic pain from childbirth is rare and biologic changes after a woman gives birth may prevent the development of pain after birth, according to two new studies.

In the first study, researchers interviewed more than 1,200 women within 36 hours of giving birth.

The lab research, conducted in rats, suggested that elevated concentrations of oxytocin, the so-called "love hormone," in the brain and spinal cord after birth protected mothers against the development of chronic pain. Experts note, however, that results from animal research are not always replicated in humans.

In an accompanying editorial, Dr. Cynthia Wong, of Northwestern University in Chicago, pointed out that "both studies provide important new inform
