Braxton Hicks Contractions

Pregnancy Resources

“False labor” contractions are intermittent, irregular uterine contractions which occur periodically toward the end of pregnancy. They may or may not be painful, but will fade with rest or a warm bath.

If the contractions become regular, every 3-5 minutes, lasting 60 seconds each, or if they persist, please call us (if after hours, please call our office to page the on call doctor).

If past 34 weeks, please head over to Labor and Delivery at the hospital for evaluation.
