So you’re overdue. Well, you’ve provided five star accommodation with an unlimited food supply for your baby. So can you blame he or she for taking squatters rights? There are a few old wives tales that you can try. One of which is spicy food, or a long walk, or perhaps sexual intercourse. I have to say though, when a baby is ready to arrive, it will arrive. No amount of spicy food will help this. Most maternity hospitals, which is good news, will only allow you to go a maximum of ten to fourteen days overdue and at this stage they will induce your labor.
