Sara Wickham looks at defining active labour and a paper which has added to the debate about the different guidelines relating to this.
The bumpiness of the playing field…
In what state does a baby need to be born by caesarean in order for us to question whether it was necessary, asks Sara Wickham.
What does “at risk of needing a caesarean” actually mean?
What do we really mean when we say that someone is ‘at risk of’ or ‘in need of’ something? Not always what those words imply, says Sara Wickham.
Another way that induction might be increasing the caesarean section rate?
When we consider whether and how much induction is raising the caesarean rate, are we counting the women who request this due to fear of induction?
