Term pregnancy: At that point, the pregnancy is full term and will be "stillborn." A sad situation and I feel for her.
She will likely have her labor induced and deliver vaginally if possible. The length of stay in the hospital will be similar to one for a regular birth. This assumes the mother doesn't have a complication such as an infection. ...Read more

Talk to your obstetrician or midwife to get cervical cultures and exclude a more serious cervical infection with gonorrhea or chlamydia. Best of luck! ...Read more

Passing some mucus however is not a cause for concern. ...Read more
