Labor & Delivery – Preterm Labor
It is not uncommon for contractions to occur irregularly and mildly throughout pregnancy. You may notice more uterine activity in the evenings, when your bladder is full, and when participating in rigorous activities. If you are experiencing 4-6 contractions in an hour, please rest and drink plenty of water. If they do not go away rather quickly, or they worsen, go to labor and delivery at the hospital so that we may check your cervix and monitor uterine activity. You do not need to call first, as the nurses will call your physician when you arrive. Also, if you think your water has broken, even if you are not experiencing contractions, please go to the hospital.
