  • Although its VERY unlikely to be 100% effaced and not dilated at all, it could be possible. If someone has scar tissue from previous surgeries on their cervix, it is possible for it to not dilate at all.

    The most I have heard of is about 60% effaced and 0cm dilated

  • Anything is possible however not very likely.
    Usually by 50% effaced(thinned out) your cervix will begin to dilate(open).
    Also your baby's station effects dilation and effacement.
