The cervix is the opening to the uterus and the dilation process begins when the cervix begins to thin and open. The cervix will dilation from 3-10 cms before the uterus starts to contract and push the baby out. When the cervix is fully dilated, it’s 10 cms.

The cervix is a small, circular muscle at the entryway to the uterus. The vagina is a muscular tube that runs from the cervix to the vulva. When a woman is pregnant, the cervix thins, softens, and opens up to 10 centimeters (cm) or more, a process called dilation.

The cervix is the part of the uterus that connects the uterus to the vagina. When a woman is pregnant, and the baby is ready to be born, the cervix opens up to allow the baby out. When the cervix is fully dilated, it means that it has opened up to 10 centimeters.

When a nurse or midwife tells you that your cervix is fully dilated, it doesn’t mean that it’s 10cm. It only means that the cervix has begun to stretch and has reached 10cm in length.

The cervix is the gateway to the uterus. During labour, the cervix stretches to allow the baby to move through the birth canal. The cervix can be visualized on an ultrasound to ensure that it is dilated to the appropriate degree.
