What are the signs of labor?

Labor is characterized by the appearance of painful uterine contractions.

The contractions cover the entire belly (the entire uterus), are painful and appear at regular intervals and more and more often as the actual birth moment approaches.

The cervix is ​​shortened, erased and dilated progressively. The membranes can break spontaneously at any time during labor.
