Babies in the United States are more likely to be born during regular business hours than during off hours, a recent study suggests.

The study, which included information from birth certificates from 41 different states, found that babies were more likely to be born between 8:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. than at other times of the day. #pregnancy #birth
The finding suggests that doctors are using medical interventions — such as cesarean sections — to schedule births.

The first stage of labor is the longest and involves three phases:

Early Labor Phase –The time of the onset of labor until the cervix is dilated to 3 cm.
Active Labor Phase – Continues from 3 cm. until the cervix is dilated to 7 cm.
Transition Phase – Continues from 7 cm. until the cervix is fully dilated to 10 cm.
This is the first and longest of the three stages of labor. It involves three phases which are early labor, active labor, and transition into delivery.
