Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Efacement percentage tells you how thick or thin the cervix is so 0% being completely thick still and 100% being paper thin ready to dilate. So no not necessarily ready, the contractions or water breaking will be the indication not the effacement.
its the want to be 100% effaced. that pretty much hints at you being almost ready or getting ready.
