Brief description This study will establish whether higher concentrations of lactate in the amniotic fluid of labouring women can be used as a surrogate marker to improve diagnoses of presence or absence of dystocia. Labour dystocia is a serious problem experienced during childbirth, and is one of the main indications for emergency caesarean section or forceps or vacuum delivery. Although dystocia is a common clinical problem, the current lack of a precise definition leads to considerable variation in practice.
