Biological Hormone Systems Non-Existent In Adoptive Mothers
The human body's natural ability of on demand provides instantaneous chemical changes (secretion of hormones in the adaption to various environmental situations
The extensive and complicated role of maternal hormones in preparation for childbirth and the long term care of the expected
child's birth. Below is a simple synopsis of the biological elements that give the mother the hormone based instinctive drive and ability to parent her offspring. The extensive physiological changes in the pregnancy are not only for the creation of a child
but the physical and mental abilities to ensure the survival of the offspring. There exists an intuitive connection between the mother-child and after the child's birth they continue to be connected although the umbilical cord has been severed. This mental connection of the mother-child that is primarily driven biologically through hormonal assistance. When the child begins the transition to disconnect from the mother it is a gradual process occurring over many years and the hormonal assistance will also gradually slow as the child begins to separate. When the maternal demands on the mother begin to slow, the maternal drive will also slow and eventually stop when the needs of the infant subside.
