The Better Birth podcast: Fetal monitoring in labour with Dr Kirsten Small

A new episode of the Better Birth podcast is now available to download. In this episode I chat to Dr Kirsten Small @birthsmalltalk , a retired specialist obstetrician and gynaecologist, who now works as an educator, writer, and researcher. Kirsten is the author of the fantastic blog Birth Small Talk, which provides a mix of research informed knowledge-based posts, a lot of which focus on fetal monitoring. We chat about the types of foetal monitoring often used during labour, the research and evidence (or lack of it!) for the use of various types such as continuous CTG, and the impact that roll out of recommendations on centralising metal monitoring may have.
