Oxytocin (a hormone that stimulates contractions during labor) is usually injected intramuscularly to aid the expulsion of the placenta after the baby comes out. That is if the mother is too weak to push. But here’s something else that works, BREASTFEEDING.
Stimulation of the nipples causes a production of oxytocin, which in turn leads to the production of milk and then stimulates contraction of the uterus, helps push the placenta out.
Apparently, your baby is all the magic you need.
