Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The psychologic consequences of fetal monitoring were investigated by means of structured interviews with 35 postpartum women. Both beneficial and detrimental effects associated with the use of fetal monitors were identified. Personality characteristics and past experiences with pregnancy and labor were found to be factors shaping the manner in which the monitor was experienced. Areas of prepartum and intrapartum care indentified in which the potential for maximizing the beneficial aspects of monitoring and reducing the detrimental ones exist. Specific management recommendations are given.
