Congratulations! I was teaching a nurse about the red/purple line technique last week. My client had a check and was 6cm. 10 minutes later, I could hear in her voice that she was getting pushy and I checked the line and it was complete. I told the nurse that she was complete and ready to push and she didn't believe me. She said, "How could you know that without giving a cervical exam?!" So I showed the line to her and she did a cervical exam and sure enough, it was right on. It's a cool trick. Is your midwife doing an official study on it? That's awesome that she's using it to assess labor!
