Amazing Video Shows How A Woman's Cervix Dilates During Labour

When it comes to labour, the body does some brilliant (and some weird) things to get babies here safely - and a woman's cervix is no different.

A video on TikTok has caught the attention of many for demonstrating how much the cervix can stretch in the stages of labour to let a little one's head through.

The video, set to the soundtrack of 'I Can't Stop' by Flux Pavilion, shows the cervix stretching from 1cm right through to 10cm; the stage when a baby would be born. Throughout, the video also showcases the different sizes next to fingers and a baby doll to show just how much the body goes through.

The end shot at 10cm features the baby 'crowning' as its head pushes through. The parting shot features a 'You Got This!' message for all mamas to be.

Others have been sharing their experience from childbirth, and remembering when their own bodies went through the various stages. One user wrote: "I dilated from 3cm to 10cm in 10 minutes when I had my son."

Another commented: "Am 40+5 weeks today and 3cm dilated."
