        WHAT ARE BRAXTON HICKS                              CONTRACTIONS?

Also referred to as practice contractions,  Braxton Hicks are occasional uterine contractions that commonly start six weeks into pregnancy 

Occurring every 10 to 20 minutes, they take the form of mild cramping but are notably different from labour contractions  because they do not change in frequency or intensity

Responding to a fan who suffered with Braxton Hicks 26 weeks into her pregnancy, Dani admitted she was at an advantage as she had researched the symptom before experiencing it. 

‘Always best to get checked if you’re scared,’ she said. I read about them in a book weirdly enough yesterday so I felt like I knew exactly what they was when it was happening.’ 

On Christmas Eve, Dani took to her Instagram stories to reveal that she is ‘so scared to give birth’ as her due date quickly approaches in ‘a month’s time’.
