Cervix Dilation Symptoms: Signs that May Indicate Preterm Labor

Over the course of your pregnancy, your body goes through amazing changes to meet the needs of your growing baby. Toward the end of your pregnancy, your cervix will go through effacement (thinning) and dilation (opening). During this time, the cervix transforms from a strong barrier to a wide opening to fit the baby’s head and shoulders during delivery. Learning about cervix dilation symptoms ahead of time can help you prepare for a normal and healthy labor and delivery.
