Going through labor is like going through hell. People must have already told you about it, and you must be bracing up to face the hell-like pain. But have you ever wondered how our body works magically or rather systematically to bring a new life out from the womb?
The process of delivering a child is nothing short of a miracle. As a woman enters labor, she passes through three stages.
MomJunction explains all the three stages of labor and gives you tips to cope with it.
Stages Of Labor
Labor progresses in three stages. Let’s see what they are:
- The first stage: It begins with the onset of the true contractions and lasts until the cervix is dilated to 10cm.
- The second stage: It lasts from cervical dilation until the delivery of the baby.
- The third stage: The process of childbirth ends with the delivery of the placenta.
