How do I know I’m in labor?
In a normal pregnancy, labor usually happens during the ninth month. Although every woman’s labor and delivery looks different, most women experience their “water breaking” which is where the amniotic membranes rupture. You may notice:
- Brown or red vaginal discharge
- Slow trickling or gushing of fluid
- Softening of the cervix
