Does your body or the baby decide when labor starts
The exact cause of labor is not fully understood, but it is generally believed to be a combination of factors involving both the mother and the baby.
Hormones, such as oxytocin, play a role in triggering contractions and the onset of labor
The baby also plays a role in the onset of labor by releasing hormones that signal to the mother’s body that it is ready for birth.
Additionally, other factors such as the baby’s size and position, the mother’s health and medical history, and external environmental factors can all influence when labor starts.
Ultimately, it is a complex interplay of factors that lead to the onset of labor, and it is not entirely clear whether the mother’s body or the baby has the final say in when labor begins.
