What should Kentucky moms know about cephalopelvic disproportion?

When a woman goes to the hospital in labor, chances are good that she isn't expecting to have to have a Cesarean section. For some women, including some in Kentucky, a failure to progress during labor end up requiring her to have a C-section. One reason that is sometimes blamed for the failure to progress is cephalopelvic disproportion. This term means that the baby's head is larger than the pelvis. 

What problems do Kentucky women face with multiple gestations?

When a woman finds out she is expecting a child, elation is usually one of the most common feelings. There are some instances in which finding out about the pregnancy is only one of the shocks she will receive. Some women find out that they are expecting more than one baby when they go in for an ultrasound. That discovery brings the pregnancy into a new category. A multiple pregnancy is considered a high-risk pregnancy. Our Kentucky readers might be interested in learning a little about what that designation means.
