There are a plethora of women who had c-section or drugged births who bonded immediately, whose babies were alert and perfect, and who might have even felt *nurtured* during their hospital stay.

I don't think that all maternal behavior and attached, loving feelings are instinctive. I'm guessing that only a small part of our mothering comes from true instinct. The rest we learn from the people around us.

I especially felt nurtured when DH would go get me fresh canteloup and sushi from Whole Foods Market. Beat the "snacks" they had in the Maternity Ward fridge.
