Rest-and-be-Thankful Phase

During Second Stage of Labor (Cervix is fully dilated → 10cm)

Contractions may ease from back-to-back to being further apart.

If to this point labor has been long or difficult the contractions may stop temporarily, and the mother can take a break or even a nap while her uterus rests and prepares for the work ahead!

This is know as Rest-and-be-Thankful Phase.
