Cervical Scar Tissue and Dilation

This is a fantastic article written by a Doula who figured out that women who have had cryo surgery for HPV sometimes have trouble with dilation (even when fully effaced). This is because of scar tissue on the cervix. If you have had this surgery you may want to read this to know how this can be overcome in labour (and it can be!)..also if you are a Doula or a Midwife you may want to start asking women if they have ever had surgery on their cervix so that you can give them options prenatally to break down the scar tissue.
