Brackston Hicks

Were you looking for information on Braxton Hicks Contractions? Brackston Hicks is a common misspelling of Braxton Hicks.
 
Braxton Hicks contractions are the way in which a woman's body prepares for true labor and the actual birthing process. These "practice" contractions are usually painless, and the cervix does not dilate (as it does with true labor). In most cases, Braxton Hicks contractions ease up with activity or a change in position.
