Babies can come in the most unexpected time. For example, some babies are born accurately after 9 months of carriage but there are cases where the baby is born at 42 weeks.
In nature there is no straight line even though there is an estimate of the duration of pregnancy in humans. Everything is changing, each cycle in man and nature in general is changing.
There are a lot of unanswered questions that a lot of people want to know. How does the baby know that he is ready to be born? Where does the impulse of giving birth coming from?
For each day there are numerous cesareans scheduled. In this way it is easier to know the time of the baby’s birth.
However, when the mothers choose to give birth in a natural way, they live full of uncertainty. The birth can occur at any moment when the woman is in the 37th week.
Even though many people think that the mother is sure when the baby is going to come, that is not really the case. According to some recent studies, the baby activates its own delivery.
The baby’s lungs activate the labor of the baby. Now we are going to explain to you how everything happens…
The home button is in the lungs of the baby
Experts are concerned about lung maturation when they want to determinate when the baby is ready to be born. The reason behind this is very specific. The labor is associated with the lungs of the baby.
These findings were discovered by the specialists at the Southwestern Medical Center at the University of Texas in the United States.
Babies are not born until they are prepared to do so. This was the interpretation of the study results. An apple always falls down from the tree when it is ripe.
If the baby is not qualified to survive on the outside, he will never come into the world. You already know this fact, if you are not able to breathe, you will not be able to live.
In order to be able to stay outside, our body organs need to be ripe. However, breathing is the most important thing.
Even though some other systems may be damaged, the person is still able to survive and live a normal life. However, our body will suffer extremely if the respiratory system fails.
This almost always results in death. Before babies are born, they need to have ripe lungs.
According to research, when the lung surfactant levels are complete, the lungs are considered as mature. The known surfactant is an element present in all humans within the alveoli.
Making breathing possible is its main function. This substance is very important since it prevents the alveoli from becoming totally devoid of air when they empty when breathing.
When and how does it happen?
According to research that was conducted on mice, there is a pair of proteins capable of controlling the activation of the genes present in the surfactant.
Until the entire period of gestation has elapsed, these proteins known as SRC-1 and SRC-2 are not activated. The process for the surfactant is completed when the cycle is completed.
The signal of birth is performed when the lungs mature. To make things more clear we are going to tell you a simple example. You fill a bucket of water only when you need it and you close the key when you are satisfied with the amount that you got.
According to experiments, the deliveries are delayed in a period equivalent to 4 weeks in human pregnancy when the action of the proteins towards the surfactant is suppressed.
The SRC-1 and SRC-2 proteins increase the secretion of surfactant for the last days of gestation. This does not occur at the same time since not all pregnancies are the same and the human body is constantly changing. Birth times are relative since each organism is different.
It is believed that the amount of platelets increases. This is very important since it is necessary to defend the body on the outside. It can be perceived that all the increase of these substances, increase the amniotic liquid.
There is sensitivity to the increase of these substances in the uterus. The response is generated due to this. The mother’s uterus swells and goes into labor when the baby’s lungs are filled with surfactant, constantly increasing the amount of this in the amniotic fluid.
