I personally have always been scared of the idea of pregnancy and giving birth, especially without help from a doctor. In history classes I always have gotten the impression the risk of death for the mother and the child is very high and problems can occur at the drop of a hat. However I always thought that the mother was the one in control and I am slightly shocked to see that is not always the case. Of course I do not mean with the doctor; obviously the doctor would be the one in control along with the women if not more.
The baby decides when to come out not the mother. Now that I read this idea of the baby being in control it makes sense; but now I have a question. If the baby decides when it is ready to come out then why are so many people choosing or being told they need to induce? Since one of the articles states the due dates are not actually very accurate then that would cancel out that reason to the question I stated. Why is there a need to have a baby at a certain time? This really makes me wonder why women do not trust their bodies. Maybe it could simply be that they are like me and are scared of giving birth because they have gotten the impression that giving birth is dangerous.
