The cervix plays a crucial role in maintaining a healthy pregnancy, acting as a mechanical barrier to hold the fetus inside the uterus during gestation. Altered mechanical properties of the cervical tissue are suspected to play an important role in spontaneous preterm birth. However, not much is known about the mechanical properties of human cervical tissue and the etiology of spontaneous preterm birth.
