Abstract:

This four-page handout educates pregnant women about the three stages of labor. It explains that the first stage of labor is divided into early labor, active labor, and transition, and provides a general timeline with information about contractions and dilation of cervix. The document outlines delivery of the baby, and delivery of the afterbirth, or placenta. For each stage of labor, the document discusses what the mother should do, and what her partner can do to help.
