Abstract

BACKGROUND: Small-for-gestational-age fetuses are at an increased risk of intrapartum fetal compromise requiring operative delivery. Factors associated with the risk of intrapartum fetal compromise are yet to be established, and a comprehensive model accounting for both the antenatal and intrapartum variables is lacking.
