Optionally, prior to delivery to a woman celebrated all of the above precursors.Usually, 2-3 expectant mother observed signs of approaching childbirth.Sometimes, the harbingers of delivery may not be available.

There are two main signs of labor:

1. onset of labor was defined as regular uterine contractions of muscles - fights.

Rhythmic contractions are felt as a feeling of pressure in the abdomen.The first contractions are accompanied by a dull ache in the lower back or thighs.Then feelings may be similar to those that are painful menstruation.Gradually, the pain of contractions become tangible.In between contractions, the pain is usually absent.True labor contractions are repeated every 15-20 minutes (and possibly a different frequency), with a gradual decrease in the interval between them to 3-4 minutes.Women who give birth for the first time, prefer to go to the hospital as soon as contractions become regular and there, although they have the time: the first birth usually last 12-14 hours.Other expectant mothers wait until the contractions become more frequent.The time when to go to the hospital, also depends on how far away it is.
