An OB muses on medically managed labor. . .
I just came across this (old, but intermittent) blog by an OB with a page of very interesting musings on “protracted” labor and what it means when a mother falls off Friedman’s labor curve. At the moment, there’s only one comment, but it mentions midwifery as a possible solution to the problem. In any case, here, at least, the blog offers some thoughtful wonderings, definitely moving in the right direction, and it also provides a contrast to the Other OB Blog–I don’t even want to give everyone’s unfavorite OB the glory of another Google hit, so I’d rather not mention her or link to her, sorry.
