Supid ? I know-What does it mean to have an unripe cervix?

What does it mean to have an unripe cervix? Does that mean your not efaced? Or not dialated?

It usually means both.  A firm cervix, closed or 1cm, and thick.  And posterior (tilted towards the back).

Is there anyway to naturally ripen the cervix like this?  Can it hinder birth?  I had a hard time dialating past 9 with my 2nd daughter so I'm worried that this was a problem then and might be now...

I was told my a midwife to take Evening Primrose Oil the last few weeks, then starting inserting it internally or having sex (sperm).
