I've heard debate both ways on whether labor is hereditary. My mom was three weeks overdue with both my sis and me but went on to have labor progress naturally both times (this was about 30 years ago). Does my mom's history also make me prone to being late? Does anyone have any advice/experience/articles to share on this?
I'm now at 34 weeks pregnant with my first and am hoping to have a home birth. I'm from New York but live just outside of London. The NHS is very supportive of home birth but once you go overdue by a week they do start talking about inductions, which must be done in the hospital and which, at this point, I hope to avoid.
