Fetal Blood Monitoring Not Helpful

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Thursday, April 25, 2013 | 0 comments

Newborn Infant, by MinderMonitoring a baby’s blood oxygen level during labor does not lead to safer deliveries or fewer Caesarean sections, according to a new study.

The good news is that this will eliminate the practice, involving an invasive procedure where a sensor is inserted into the uterus to rest on the baby’s face.

The device has been deemed as “not providing any meaningful benefit to mothers or babies.”

Findings of the study will be published in The New England Journal of Medicine.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
