Objective of the study: to obtain new data on the dynamics of the labor process, cervix dilatation and head station on the labor process and to develop a new progress indices.
Background: the best method used today to supervise the labor process is to follow cervix dilatation and head station. Today, the physician or the midwife use manual examination to estimate cervix dilatation and head station. This examination is perform many times in a normal labor process, and even more if there is any delay. The information from these examinations is inaccurate and non-continuous. In case of delay in the labor process, the delay will diagnosed late, because the frequency of the manual examination is about once an hour.
With the assistance of the BirthTrack device we can get continuous data on the labor process and get indices to estimate the labor process progress without the use of vaginal (manual) examination.
40 women in an active labor will take part in the study.
Method: by connecting sensors to the woman abdomen, to the cervix and to the baby head we follow the cervix dilatation and the fetus head station.

Allowing low-risk pregnant women to eat less restrictive diets during labor may not only make them happier, but may shorten labor, too.
Hospital admission during early labor may increase women's risk for medical and surgical interventions. However, it is unclear which diagnostic guideline is best suited for identifying the active phas...

Obese women have increased leptin levels and longer duration of labor compared to normal weight women. Leptin has an inhibitory effect on myometrial contractility in vitro. Our purpose was to examine ...
The beginning of true OBSTETRIC LABOR which is characterized by the cyclic uterine contractions of increasing frequency, duration, and strength causing CERVICAL DILATATION to begin (LABOR STAGE, FIRST ).
The repetitive uterine contraction during childbirth which is associated with the progressive dilation of the uterine cervix (CERVIX UTERI). Successful labor results in the expulsion of the FETUS and PLACENTA. Obstetric labor can be spontaneous or induced (LABOR, INDUCED).
Medical problems associated with OBSTETRIC LABOR, such as BREECH PRESENTATION; PREMATURE OBSTETRIC LABOR; HEMORRHAGE; or others. These complications can affect the well-being of the mother, the FETUS, or both.
Pain associated with OBSTETRIC LABOR in CHILDBIRTH. It is caused primarily by UTERINE CONTRACTION as well as pressure on the CERVIX; BLADDER; and the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT. Labor pain mostly occurs in the ABDOMEN; the GROIN; and the BACK.
Allowing a woman to be in LABOR, OBSTETRIC long enough to determine if vaginal birth may be anticipated.
