If you think you’re in labour but not sure, check these early signs of labour:
- Water breaking
- A brown or pink mucus discharge known as bloody show which is the mucus plug that blocks the cervix
- Painful contractions that are regular and intervals are becoming increasingly shorter while contractions become longer and more intense
Remember each woman’s labour is different and the above signs can be a sign that labour is starting, or it could still be a few days away. These are all changes that take place in pre-labour, early labour and/ or active labour.
If your waters break contact your care-giver immediately!
