What can you tell me about cervical mucus during labor?


Answer by  DStone (817)

Cervical mucus is in the form of a plug that basically blocks the opening between the baby and the world. Usually in the last few weeks of pregnancy, this will fall out-sometimes all at once, sometimes in pieces. Don't worry if it doesn't; the doctor will still be able to deliver the baby.

Right after your water breaks the cervical mucus plug is going to be following. Most of the time you don't even know it has shed.

The most noticeable cervical mucus during labor is your mucus plug. It is thick and may be clear, greenish, brownish, or blood-tinged.

Cervical mucus is also referred to as "the plug" during labor. A substantial amount of mucus from the cervix is discharged in the early to middle stages of labor. The mucus is a thick substance that lines the cervix during pregnancy as a protectant from outside bacteria and or other particles that could be harmful to the fetus.

When you are close to going into labor, you will lose your cervical mucus plug. You can identify it most times when you wipe and can see an egg white substance tinged with red or pink. Some women do not see this at all before their labor. It is not painful.

You will notice an increase of cervical mucus as you get closer to time to deliver your baby, the mucus helps to prepare your cervix for birth and allow lubercation to allow the baby to get through.
