She knows! When an expectant mom named Emilie admitted she's starting to get 'nervous' about going into labor, Jennifer assured her 'it is the most romantic day you'll ever experience'
Keeping it (very) real: Kristen, however, said 'it's gonna look like a homicide' with lots of blood
Kristen, who has daughters Delta, four, and Lincoln, six, with her husband Dax Shepard, had a much different take.
'You’re a better person than I am because I was gonna say, "It’s gonna look like a homicide,"' she admitted. 'There is way more blood than you think there should be.'
The Good Place star went on to advise Emilie to throw away her birth plan 'because it's never going to happen like that.'
Kristen recounted being pregnant with her first daughter Lincoln and calling her doctor because she thought her water had broke.

'She gets me on the examination table. She goes, "Huh? So you said your water broke?" And I said, "Yeah, definitely. It was a big splash on my bathroom floor,"' she explained. 'And she goes, "OK. Your water didn't break, but it's quite possible you peed your pants."'
Another mom in the group, Deanna Clower, said she is on maternity leave after giving birth to a three-month-old baby, and she wanted to know when she would start feeling like herself again.
'The answer’s never. You’re not gonna,' Kristen said, as Jennifer shook her head in agreement. 'Because you’re a different self. And it’s important to talk to others. Momming is hard, but it’s worth it.'
The actresses also gave advice to Megan Safar, a mom who has a three-year-old and a four-year-old who are just 11 months apart.

She wanted to know how to handle her children's tantrums, admitting to Kristen that calling them by their full names just doesn't work.
'You have to just be like, ‘Can you believe this little s**t is having a tantrum?' Jennifer advised as the women laughed. 'I would say that is the mindset.'
Kristen, meanwhile, revealed her husband Dax has a surefire approach for handling their daughters' temper tantrums that she has found to be helpful.
'He says, "Sometimes when they’re having a tantrum, treat 'em like the hot girl in high school: Just ignore 'em and then they’ll come to you,"' she shared. 'I thought that was so silly when he said it, and then it actually works.'
