What is cervical ripening

In pregnancy, your cervix has 2 major functions. First, it retains its physical integrity by remaining firm during pregnancy as your womb dramatically enlarges. This physical integrity is very important, so that your growing baby can remain in the womb until the right time for the delivery.

Second, in preparation for labor and delivery, the cervix softens and becomes more distensible, a process called cervical ripening. These physical and chemical changes are required for cervical dilation, labor and delivery of your baby
