When an expectant mother’s due date approaches, she may look for the signs of the start of labor. Certain signs may suggest that labor will soon begin. It is important for the mother to be aware of the changes that her body is going through as it prepares for labor, and what she can expect as the labor process begins. If a mother suspects that she may indeed be in labor, she should contact her doctor or midwife immediately. Having a routine obstetrics doctor can help in identifying all the signs of labor. 


As labor approaches, some mothers may experience an impulse to get the house ready for the baby (commonly referred to as “nesting”), although not all women experience it. As the body begins to prepare for labor and delivery, the baby may move into the lower part of the pelvis or “drop”. The cervix may begin to thin and soften. An expecting mother may experience clear or slightly bloody Vaginal discharge a few days before labor begins. Some additional signs of labor include:

Some mothers experience “false” contractions called Braxton Hicks contractions. It may help to time the contractions to determine whether they are true contractions or Braxton Hicks contractions. True contractions last about 30 to 90 seconds and become more frequent and intense.

Frequently Asked Questions 

What is an obstetricians and why is it important? 

  • An obstetrician is a medical specialist who focuses on taking care of pregnant women and ensuring safe deliveries of their babies. These doctors are trained to provide prenatal care, monitor fetal growth, and diagnose and manage any complications that may arise during pregnancy. Obstetricians also play a crucial role during childbirth, assisting women through every step of the delivery process. Their expertise in handling high-risk pregnancies and performing interventions such as C-sections can make all the difference in ensuring healthy outcomes for both mother and baby. In short, obstetricians are an essential and invaluable resource for expecting mothers, providing vital medical care and support throughout their pregnancies and deliveries.

What’s the difference between an obstetrician and a gynecologist?

  • While both obstetricians and gynecologists specialize in women’s health, there is a key difference between the two. While an obstetrician focuses on pregnancy and childbirth, a gynecologist specializes in the care of the female reproductive system. This includes preventive care such as routine checkups, screenings for cancer or other diseases, management of menstrual disorders, contraception advice, and treatment of infertility. Although a gynecologist may be qualified to provide prenatal care, obstetricians are the experts in ensuring a safe delivery and providing postpartum care for both mother and baby. 

Why is prenatal care important?

Prenatal care is important for both mother and baby. Regular checkups with an obstetrician can help to detect any potential problems during pregnancy, as well as provide advice on healthy lifestyle habits such as diet and exercise. Early detection of any issues during the pregnancy can help to prevent complications that could affect the health of both mother and child. Additionally, prenatal care helps to ensure the baby is growing and developing as expected, and can identify any potential development delays. Obstetricians also provide information on labor and delivery, which can help to prepare new mothers for childbirth. Finally, obstetricians are available during postpartum care to provide medical advice about caring for a newborn.  In short, regular prenatal care visits with an obstetrician can greatly improve your chance of a successful pregnancy.
