Getting ready for labour in pregnancy

Your cervix, too, is starting to prepare for birth: It starts to dilate (open) and to efface (thin out) in the days or weeks before you deliver. Especially if this is not your first pregnancy, you may feel some crampiness and pain in your groin and lower back as labor nears. Throughout your pregnancy, the hormone relaxin has made all of your ligaments soften and loosen (it’s also responsible for your bouts of clumsiness this past trimester). Just as the muscles in your uterus are relaxing in preparation for birth, so are other muscles in your body — including those in our rectum.
Pregnant mother will feel a little fear and anxiety with excitement, as the days leading to the expected date of delivery comes nearer. How it works: Squatting helps open the pelvic outlet to allow more room for your baby to descend. How it works: Doing deep breathing exercises regularly can help refresh and calm you before and during labor.
How it works: Walking is a natural way to use the force of gravity to pull your baby down, which can put gentle pressure on your cervix, thus encouraging it to widen (dilate).


How it works: The pelvic tilt strengthens abdominal muscles, improves flexibility, and helps relieve backaches during pregnancy and labor. To help you relax and be physically ready for easy childbirth, here are some prenatal exercises to prepare for labor. Slowly slide your back down the wall until you reach a squatting position with your thighs parallel to the floor. Inhale slowly and deeply through your nose, filling your lungs as your belly pushes forward. Just checking your mail by standing, walking around your kitchen to perform daily tasks, or walking around the neighborhood with a friend or your partner is an easy and comfortable way to exercise towards the end of pregnancy, which can help start labor.
Toning these muscles can relieve the discomforts that occur in late pregnancy, including hemorrhoids and leaky bladder.
That super-size belly, along with the smooshed bladder, can make it hard (even impossible) to get a good night’s sleep during the last days and weeks of pregnancy. You’ll feel their pinch as the muscles in your uterus tighten in preparation for their big moment (pushing that baby out!).


It can induce labor time period by strengthening the contractions if you are ready to give birth.
You can also do the Kegel exercises by contracting the pelvic floor muscles and holding for 3 to 10 seconds. This thickened, pinkish discharge is also called the bloody show and is a good indication that labor is imminent (though without labor contractions or dilation of three to four centimeters, labor could still be a few days away!).
Established labour is usually when you have three, one-minute contractions in the space of 10 minutes.
