did you hear about the purple line check?

The Bottom Line: An Alternative Method for Checking Cervical Dilation : Labor and Childbirth : Pregnancy

More info on checking without checking:

You can also learn to do self checks. A lot of people get up in arms about them, but many women check their cervix while TTC and doing so safely is very easy, so long as you educate yourself on how to do it. I also find self-checks MUCH more gentle than being checked by a doctor/midwife.
Thank you Jaidynsmum for the beautiful siggy!
