Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Woman in labour. Full-term pregnant woman being comforted by a friend and a midwife during early labour (childbirth). Labour involves painful, rhythmic contractions of the muscular uterine wall. These get stronger and more frequent as labour progresses. First the contract- ions dilate the cervix, the neck of the uterus, before they push the baby out of the body.
