Episode 12 - CTG with Kirsten Small

Mel and B sit down with Dr Kirsten Small to discuss the research related to CTG use during birth and all the risks and benefits of this monitoring option. The use of CTG to monitor babies in labour is common practice and almost all women will be offered it during labour... but is it beneficial? Does it make birth safer for babies? or safer for women? or safer for your care provider?
