I did find this. Don't look at it if you are sensitive! It is straight up photos of someone's cervix on her period!!!
But to answer your original question - No, I don't know of any photos of a dilating cervix.
Or maybe she had help?
Sorry, I have no help for the original question. But if you find it, please share!
What about some medical or .edu source? Don't doctors have to have some curriculum to study? Maybe?

ddc crashing, if you read some on that link, it says she used a plastic speculum, a digital camera with a macro setting, and a talented boyfriend wearing a headlamp. I can just imagine how the conversation went when she asked him for his help with a little project,
Anyway very gross but very intersting at the same time I'm glad you posted
I agree, it is ridiculous how much women do not know about their bodies, and what we do know we think is gross. I keep asking dh if he is okay with the perineal massage this time around bc I am so much fatter and he might think it is gross. Why on earth would I think a few pounds on my body would make my vagina gross? I seriously need some help before I start raising a little girl!
Anyways, SOMEONE should do this. I just realized I don't have a (gasp) macro lens or a regular digital camera....

The Rule of "10" Versus Women's Primal Wisdon by Lydi Owen
I find the need to really visually that opening and what my body is doing as I go through each contraction.
About the lip - I also pushed through it with my first DD because I was already at 10cm.
I am on my third and think my prodromal labor might be the real thing this time - fingers crossed and lots of prayers.
MW says I am 2-3 and mostly effaced. Had a bloody show and more plug loss yest. but might have been from PE too.
I am 39, 1 day , so I am more preg. than I have ever been!
Praying for my baby boy to be born already. I have relatives visiting and waiting around!!!!
( No pressure, right?)
I don't post often but thanks for all of the great links and threads everyone.
Congrats to all mamas who had their babies already.
mom to DD, 4, DS, 2 and DS due 8/12
