Maternal Health

Obstructed labor remains a major cause of maternal morbidity and mortality worldwide in developing countries including Nigeria. It is still a major public health problem in many developing countries and consumes scarce resources budgeted for healthcare. Labour is considered obstructed when the presenting part of the fetus cannot progress into the birth canal, despite strong uterine contractions. Several interventions, such as advocacy for the use of the partograph to monitor labor and the provision of emergency obstetric care services have been proposed to reduce the scourge of obstructed labor and its sequelae. However, recent data suggests the prevalence remains high in sub Saharan Africa and Nigeria. Perhaps there may be other factors and variables that seem to make obstructed labor a persistent and intractable condition unresponsive to interventions targeted at health facilities in developing countries.
