I dont understand the concept of how "When babies are ready they'll come out"

I dont understand how they "know" when to come, what do they do to make the human body contract?

Is it the baby thats ready? or your own body thats actually ready?

Sorry im just thinking about how this is possible that a baby with a tiny brain knows when he/she is ready =p

Its quite know anything?

  • I'm sure it's not just the baby that sends a signal, but the woman's body as well. We have to know somehow that thing is just too big to be in there anymore!!!

  • That concept is false. If it were true women wouldn't miscarry, we wouldn't have preterm babies and overdue babies.

  • It's just nature. It's not the baby actually "knowing" to come out. It's just a saying.

  • you know...i am not crazy about that idea either...i know a girl whos doctors misjudged her due date...when she finally was induced it was because her placenta had already started to decompose...she lost the baby and at autopsy the baby was found to be perfectly healthy but was 45 weeks old...its really kinda scary. and i dont want to go over my due date...
