What does efficiated mean?

It may sound really silly, 2nd pregnancy and have only heard the term on here. What does it mean?

See that's how bad it is I don't even know the bloody word! Thanks for the answers and putting me right. Dread to think what the word means that I asked!! 🙁

  • Yes, it means thinning out of the cervix. They measure the cervix in percentages. The goal is to get to 100% effaced.

    Don't feel silly...that's why we're here! :O)
