Labor Pattern in South Indian Population: A Retrospective Study

One of the most common reasons for a lower segment caesarean section is labour dystocia (LSCS). A considerable shift in the pace of cervical dilation and labour progression has been discovered in recent studies. Because there are few big studies on labour in this ethnic group, this study was done to learn about the labour behaviour of women in South India who were having spontaneous labour. Materials and Procedures: A retrospective investigation was undertaken in our teaching hospital. A partogram was kept and labour was handled according to protocol. Case records were used to extract and analyse data.

Results: Labor progressed considerably more slowly than expected. The length of time it took to deliver a baby varied greatly. In contrast to Friedmannscurve, none of the women had a cervical dilation trend of 1 cm/hr. Despite the fact that the average duration to proceed from 3 to 10 cms was 5 hours, women have delivered after 19 hours of waiting.

Conclusion: Many women took longer to deliver than the 95th percentile, and some even went longer than three times the median duration. In contrast to Friedmannscurve, none of the women had a cervical dilation trend of 1 cm/hr. Despite the fact that the average duration to proceed from 3 to 10 cms was 5 hours, women have delivered after 19 hours of waiting.
