This is done to help close a cervix that has weak muscles during pregnancy. It is also known as cervical stitches. The cervix is a narrow canal that connects the lower part of the uterus to the vagina and allows the baby to pass through during vaginal delivery.

It's usually done in the first trimester between (12-14 weeks) of pregnancy. It will be in place until you are in your third trimester when risk of misscarriages or premature birth has passed.

During pregnancy, the closed cervix keeps the baby inside the uterus until delivery. An insufficient cervix opens too early in the pregnancy and can lead to miscarriages or preterm birth. A cervical cerclage can help a pregnancy reach full term, at least 37 weeks, by keeping the cervix closed.
