  • I don't believe in it personally--everyone is different..noone has the same labor experience like say a mother and a daughter. that's just my thought.

  • no i dont believe it runs in the family either. my mom was in labor with me for like 48hours i had my first son in 6hours lol plus i was like 2weeks late my son was a week early. every pregnancy is different every labor is different you arnt built like your mom.

  • it is common for a woman to have all or most of her babies preterm - uterus/health etc.
    It IS NOT common for daughter to have same birth circumstances as her mother, sisters, aunts, etc.
