What does it mean to be -2?

My doctor says that i am 2 cent. dialated, 50% effaced and -2. Does anyone know what the negitive 2 is. I hear that it is how far the baby is down but im not sure really how it works or what number it goes to.

  • A minus 2 station is the location of you baby in the pelvis. click the link at the bottom and it will show you a pic of the different statons. You're almost there. Good luck!
