Why does it take so long for us to understand how babies are born? When kids don't get explained something clearly, that's when their imaginations start to run amok. Unless you were a key witness at your younger siblings' birth, it's unlikely you knew exactly what went down until an embarrassingly late age. Eventually, they have to teach you in school exactly what happens. But until that point, all we can do is make up what seems the most likely in our little child brains.
On Reddit people are sharing how they imagined childbirth before they understood what went down, and it just proves how much e ought to invest in sex-Ed.
