Barry Epstein asked:

If she bleeds and has pain from labor and then it stops, and it later picks up and she delivers, Rav Chisda says she is tamei as a zavah due to false labor.

R'Chanina says she is tahor as the bleeding was due to the labor.

1) what is the halachah?

2) do we have childbirth as a zivah today?

The Kollel replies:

We Pasken like Rav Chisda (as stated by the Magid Mishneh Hilchos Isurei Biah 7:2, see Ein Mishpat). All bleeding today is considered Tamei as if it was the bleeding of a Zavah, so this would naturally be included.

All the best,

Yaakov Montrose
