Does sex bring on labour??????

Answer: Hi, Please remember that a pregnancy is meant to last for 40 weeks so that you and your baby are ready for the birth. Sex can help your body get ready for labour as sperm does contain some hormones that assist the cervix to ripen. Don't overdo it though! Best wishes, Alex.
