  • Effacement is the thinning of the cervix in preparation for laor and delivery. If you are 70% you are in good shape. It means you probably won't have a long time to wait to start dilating when labor does begin. Usually the first part of labor is the thin or effacement. When you are fiuully effaced and dilated to 10..time to push and get that baby born. Good Luck!
