Laughter is also beneficial during pregnancy as it can help reduce stress and relax you. The endorphins released when laughing are pain relieving and laughter is shown more often to be a social event than one done alone. So, it may be a good idea to watch a funny movie with someone during the early stages of labor to start your birth off on happy note.
Laughter is also a wonderful milestone when your baby reaches it. Some babies begin laughing sooner than others, but your heart will be so full of joy the first time you see your little one laughing, I'm sure you'll crack up right along with them! These early episodes of laughing together can be wonderful for forming bonds between you and your child that will aid in positive parenting efforts down the road.
With all these benefits, why not make it a point to laugh with your children every day?
