Putting on a Show!

Posted on 03 September 2012 by Annerley

What on earth is a ‘show’? With regards to labour, that is.

Hulda replies:

A show is a plug of mucous that sits in the cervix during pregnancy.

Sometimes there can be some bleeding in the area, resulting in the mucous being mixed with old or a small amount of fresh blood.  You may lose it in one go or in small amounts.  This is not a sign that your baby is coming imminently or even in the next week, but it is a good sign that your cervix is starting to soften to get ready for birth.
