Abstract:

In this column, the author reprises a recent selection from the Lamaze International research blog, Science & Sensibility. With the introduction of a new technology intended to acutely track fetal station and position during labor through birth, questions are being raised about the necessity—and possible danger—of this technology and its potential impact on normal birth.
