Metadata[+] Show full item record
Does maternal position during delivery affect the incidence of neonatal shoulder dystocia? Evidence-based answer: Apparently not. Although underpowered, studies show that mothers delivering in McRoberts position (flexion and abduction of hips) with or without early suprapubic pressure or alternative positions (such as lateral, handsknees, or squatting) do not have a reduced incidence of shoulder dystocia compared with mothers delivering in the standard lithotomy position (SOR: B, underpowered RCTs, quasi-RCT, and cohort study).
