I know, odd question. But think about it. Of all the parts of your body the cervix is one of those parts that most women haven’t a clue about. We know it’s in there, somewhere below the uterus. We know about cervical cancer and get annual exams to ensure our down-there health is up to par. But what else do you know? Most women’s knowledge of their cervix stops at that, especially if they have never had a baby and are not in the medical field. Before I became pregnant I knew very little about my cervix and even wondered why on earth “cervical” is used for two different body parts (you know, the one in your neck?!).
Below is a link to a fantastic article on cervical myths (the one down there). Aspiring to be a midwife has me sifting through all kinds of literature to educate myself. Every woman and her body is different, however the natural process of pregnancy and birth is quite universal.
