I am a labor and delivery nurse and see this all the time. The answer to the question is that the more children you have the more lax your cervix becomes. We call this, unofficially, a multip-cervix. If this is your fifth child having a cervix that is dialated even a few centimeters may just be the way your cervix is, not a sign of impending labor or even further dilitation at this point. You will most likely just walk around the rest of your pregnancy dilated 1+ cm. And that is normal and actually, to be expected from a cervix that has been dilated four times prior. Unless you are experiencing ongoing contractions, vaginal bleeding or fluid leakage you have not much to be concerned about. Of course make sure to keep your doctor updated with any changes in your condition. it only means that you are dialating early, I was 4 cm dialated when I had my daughter at 38 weeks, I dialated prior to giving birth with all my kids and they were all full term

What happens to the cervix during child birth?

Building up to the actual birth, the cervix goes through spasms and the opening enlarges. It becomes thinner (called effacement) and opens (called dilation).

Child Labour Simulation A historical simulation on child labour. Each student is given the name of a person involved in the debate over the issue of children working in textile factories in the early part of the 19th century. The characters are divided into eight different categories: Factory Owners: Supporting Child Labour, Factory Owners Opposing Child Labour, Campaigners Against Child Labour, Supporters of Child Labour, Doctors Opposing Child Labour, Doctors Supporting Child Labour, Child Workers: Girls and Child Workers: Boys. Each student then used the Internet to discover details of their character and their views on child labour. Each student writes a brief biography of their character and prepares a speech for a debate entitled: "Parliament should pass legislation making it illegal for children under the age of twelve to work in textile factories." See the article, Child Labour in the 19th Century, for an account of how the simulation works in the classroom.
