Reasons for Your Child to stay in your womb til week 39 or longer

If you don’t have any health issues during pregnancy, it’s best to carry your baby for at least 39 weeks or until Your Child tells your body that it’s time.

Your Child’s brain, lungs, liver, and other vital organs are still developing in the last weeks of pregnancy. Babies born too early may develop more health problems at birth or later in life.

Reasons for your baby to stay in the womb
These are the reasons why your baby needs 39 weeks in the womb:

Your Child knows best when it’s time
A 2015 study conducted by researchers at UT Southwestern Medical Centre suggests that as Your Child’s lungs mature, they release two proteins into the amniotic fluid. 

These proteins induce an inflammatory reaction in the uterus that initiates labor. Thus, in most cases, the baby will likely decide when it’s time to come out.
