Labor Signs

Most women will go into labor between 38 and 42 weeks.

In the weeks leading up to labor you will begin to notice contractions or cramps that last for a couple of hours and then space out and go away. You may also experience an increase in vaginal discharge and pelvic pressure. Mucous discharge is normal late in pregnancy and could include a mucous plug. If you experience significant vaginal bleeding or leaking of fluid, please go directly to the hospital. If you have contractions every five minutes for at least one hour, please go directly to the hospital. If you do not notice at least five movements in an hour, please go directly to the hospital.

You should check in at Chandler Regional Medical Center when you are in labor.
