If baby is due...: If the baby is due to be born, the contractions are how the baby gets out. That's how nature works. If there are problematic contractions, one's Ob-Gyn doctor can help decide the next step. Otherwise, if having normal contractions, they have to keep going in order for the baby to be born. A lot of it is mind over body, and hopefully, practice and preparation is helping.
