The Effect of Membrane Sweeping on the Delivery Time and the Need of Induction in Term Pregnancy

2018-07-24 12:38:13 | BioPortfolio


Pregnancies that extend beyond 42 weeks of gestation are at an increased risk for poor fetal and maternal outcomes. For decreasing the number of these cases, some labor induction techniques are used. The status of the cervix is an indicator for the success of the induction. In these study, investigators investigate the effect of membrane sweeping on the need of induction and the delivery time in term pregnancy.
