  • Dilation and Effacement doesn't really mean anything as far as labor is concerned. There are many women who aren't even dilated at all who go into labor the next day. Same with effacement. We never bothered with effacement, though I did know I was dilated one centimeter. I ended up going into labor at 38 weeks naturally and all on my own.
