This is a graphic representation of all the observations made during labour. The maternal condition, fetal condition and the progress of labour are carefully recorded. The correct use of a partogram is one of the most important steps in the safe management of labour. The partogram helps to identify problems and plan further management.
The observations of the fetus must be recorded on the partogram as shown in Figure 7-1:
Figure 7-1: Recording fetal observations on the partogram
The condition of the mother, progress of labour and any management decisions must also be recorded in the appropriate places on the partogram.
