Research seminar: Listening to the fetal heart beat during labour, is there another way?

Although listening intermittently to the fetal heart beat during labour is recommended for the majority of women and is congruent with a physiological approach to childbirth, the optimal listening technique remains unknown. Current guidelines recommend counting the heart beat for one full minute every 15 minutes in the first stage of labour and every five minutes in the second stage. However, could it be performed in a different way? This seminar presents a clinical study that was undertaken to compare different counting techniques for listening to the fetal heart during labour.

This is a lunchtime seminar, so please feel free to bring your lunch along with you.

Please be sure to register your attendance.
