Babies are precious gifts that bring joy to the world. They offer endless moments of laughter, love, and pride to their parents. Indeed, pregnancy can be an emotional rollercoaster with tears flowing endlessly from hormonal imbalances to uncontrollable weeping episodes. It may seem odd or unnecessary for an expectant mother to cry for no apparent reason, but your tears actually benefit both you and your baby beyond the obvious emotional release.
Let’s Talk Hormones
Hormones! Those pesky little organisms responsible for our erratic behavior (on top of everything else) during pregnancy.

One dominant hormone amid others during this period is estrogen whose levels fluctuate during prenatal periods increasing tenfold above normal average levels especially towards the third trimester when babies gain weight and assume proper positioning within utero i.e head-down position; (preferably facing backwards).

Research has shown that crying releases a hormone called prolactin, which, when secreted during breastfeeding, nourishes your newborn baby. Furthermore, studies indicate that regular crying sessions lead to the transfer of antibodies present in tears from mom to baby through vaginal secretions increasing immunity further against future infections making delivery easier due to softening cervix pre-delivery.
