Labor and Delivery
While it takes nine months to grow a full-term baby, labor and delivery occurs in a matter of days or even hours. However, it’s the process of labor and delivery that tends to occupy the minds of expectant parents the most.
Signs of labor
Labor has started or is coming soon if you experience symptoms such as:
- increased pressure in the uterus
- a change of energy levels
- a bloody mucus discharge
Real labor has most likely arrived when contractions become regular and are painful.
