Abstract

The present study examined the reactions of women to routine intrapartum fetal monitoring at a medical center and at a community hospital. Positive responses were found in an interview and on a questionnaire developed from interviews reported in prior studies. Women believed they understood the purpose of the monitor and used it for various purposes in labor. Some differences in reactions to intrapartum fetal monitoring were found to be based on particular characteristics of the women in each setting.
