  • Effaced means the cervic flattens and thins out as you get closer to delivery. Some women go into labor with o% effacement. Others have significant progress. Don't ever feel dumb about asking questions regarding your pregnancy.

  • Sign up for a class as soon as possible. The nurse will teach you and your partner everything that will go on in delivery. The more you know about what is about to happen the more confident you will be about your delivery. You could actually say you had a wonderful delivery.
