  1. Water breaking
  2. A brown or pink mucus discharge known as bloody show which is the mucus plug that blocks the cervix
  3. Painful contractions that are regular and intervals are becoming increasingly shorter while contractions become longer and more intense

Remember each woman’s labour is different and the above signs can be a sign that labour is starting, or it could still be a few days away. These are all changes that take place in pre-labour, early labour and/ or active labour.

If your waters break contact your care-giver immediately!
