The Love Geek Story
DNA contains the hereditary material used to encode the genetic instructions used in the development and function of all known living things. Oxytocin is the love hormone. We feel its effects when we fall in love with our partner and our babies. Mitochondria cells contain one piece of DNA that is inherited only down the female line. Every person alive today has inherited their mitochondrial DNA from one single great-great-great-. …..great-grandmother, nearly 200,000 years ago.
Scientists have discovered the mitochondrion cell from the growing baby in its mother’s heart and other organs, and it has recently been found embedded in the mother’s brain. It is believed they may be acting as stem cells sent from the baby to repair the mother’s body. There is also some evidence that mitochondria are transferred from mother to infant during nursing. Some scientists believe there is an exchange of mitochondria between twins in utero and there is a possibility that younger siblings have their older siblings’ mitochondria.
We have been working on our finishing process to bring you a new baby soft finish. Soft from the moment it arrives it still has our exceptionally hard wearing, pull resistant, immensely supportive cotton and our wonderfully grippy weave. We know you will love the new softness and drape of our feather soft finish which will now be standard on all our wraps.
