yes earthworms have babies. Earthworms carry both male and female reproductive parts --they are hermaphroditic. Two worms line up side to side with their heads at opposite ends. Huge amounts of mucus secrete from the worms, passing the male sperm from one to the other. When the worm is alone it then secretes another mucus ring which slides over the worms body in which the eggs cling onto which then fertilizes them. Then the eggs slip off the worm's body and is left in a cocoon with is left in the soil.
