10 centimeters

Doesn't sound like much but when you're in labor, 10 centimeters sounds like an awful lot and sure feels like it will never happen. Not to mention, omigosh, a BABY is going to fit through 10 centimeters?? So, for those of you who are interested, here is the practice board for L&D nurses (as well as residents) when it comes to vaginal exams. I pity the women who have nurses with short fingers.

And here's my friend, Kathy, generously allowing me to snap a picture of her demonstrating the proper technique in vaginal exams. BTW, we were hard at work....not messing around. :)
