Natalie's Story

Natalie went into labor with her daughter Coral on Christmas Day. She learned just why #dilationmatters when her providers relied on cervical dilation measurements to track "labor progress" and recommended pitocin.

Olivia's Story

Olivia was excited to greet her bundle of joy, but when her cervical dilation did not change, her doctors recommended a cesarean delivery for "arrest of dilation."

Nicole's Story

Two weeks past her due date, Nicole's doctors recommended a "labor induction." Cervical dilation measurements guided her physician's decisions about how exactly to "induce" labor.
