I am studying Maternity right now.
Does anyone out there have a snappy way to remember that;
Chadwick's Sign is of the vagina
Goodell's Sign is of the Cervix
and Hedger's Sign is of the lower uterus?
Perhaps a mneumonic or something?
Let me know if you have any ideas. I know what it is but can't remember where they are
Chaddwick's: C stands for color; Chaddwick's sign is to check for color change in the vagina.
Goodel's: G is for gooey; Goodels sign checks for softening of the cervix, it becomes almost a gooey texture.
Hedger's: Makes you scream"HEY", It hurts because the uterus is being manipulated to check for tilting.
Hope this helps, My maternity teacher taught us these.
