The correct answer to this question is Transitional phase. A woman in labor with cervix dilation at 8cm completely effaced and at o station is at transitional phase of labor. Transitional phase is also known as the advanced phase of labor. It is the 3rd phase of labor. For most women, this is the most intensive phase of labor. It is also the shortest phase of labor. The cervix dilates from 7 to 10 centimetres. Contraction becomes sudden intense in this phase and can last for 60 to 90 seconds.

Contractions are spaced between two to three minutes. The expecting mother may feel tired or exhausted. The latent phase is the first phase and usually the longest. Contractions at this phase may not be noticeable or bothersome. The cervix dilates up to 3 cenimeters. Active phase is the second phase of labor. At this phase, the cervix dilates up to 7 centimetres. The intensity of contraction increases and is noticeable.

Transitional phase

The transitional phase of labor extends from 8 to 10 cm; it is the shortest but most difficult and intense for the patient. The latent phase extends from 0 to 3 cm; it is mild in nature. The active phase extends form 4 to 7 cm; it is moderate for the patient. The expulsive phase begins immediately after the birth and ends with separation and expulsion of the placenta.
