A study was conducted on 140 pregnant women at and after 28 weeks of pregnancy for finding out the relationship of cervical length and position with onset of preterm labour. Incidence of preterm labour was significantly higher (p < 0.001) in women with central position of cervix (54.67%) than that with posterior position of cervix (10.77%). Onset of preterm delivery was closely related to cervical length of 2.5 cm or less irrespective of central (82.75%) or posterior (20%) position of cervix (p < 0.001).
