Yep! It has to do with that big gush of oxytocin after the birth
In most medicated births, theyre given a dose of pitocin, which stops your bodies natural release of oxytocin, and pitocin doesnt have the same brain effect as natural oxytocin - oxytocin is the "love" hormone
Its whats released when we have an orgasm, its what is released when we feel those feelings of love
So there ya go! lol
Well, that makes sense, my WHOLE first birth labor was a big ol pitocin haze....
