Kerstin Uvnäs Moberg got her MD and a Ph.D. in Pharmacology at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden. She has been employed as a full professor of Physiology at the University of Agriculture in Uppsala, Sweden. She has worked with research on the physiology of labor and breastfeeding for more than 30 years. The focus of the research has been on the role of oxytocin and sensory stimulation, in particular, stimulation of cutaneous sensory nerves during labor, skin-to-skin contact after birth, and breastfeeding. She has worked with animal experiments and also studies involving humans. She has studied the physiological mechanisms involved in birth and breastfeeding and short- and long-term physiological and behavioral maternal adaptations induced during birth and breastfeeding. She is also working on the role of oxytocin during human-animal interaction and in menopausal women.
