Brief Answer: Stitch helps if short cervix Detailed Answer: Dear XXXX, Thanks for writing to healthcare magic. I think you mean a stitch to hold the baby in the uterus. Twin pregnancy may lead to short cervix. If the length of cervix on 5 th month scan is less than 2.5 cm then she may need cervical encerclage which is commonly called cervical stich. This is usually applied to prevent early labour pain. After the stitch strict bed rest is recommended. Also medications to relax uterus also given. Sex should be avoided.daily activities are restricted a lot Stitch removed at 8 and half months. If the ultrasound report shows short cervix then your doctor may recommend the stitch now in 5-6 months. There is no diet to avoid cervical stitch. Writer back if more queries. Thanks Dr Bhagyashree
