Pranoy Nath


Objectives: The aims of the study were to observe the modes of delivery and fetal outcome in meconium stain liquor. Methodology: This prospective observational study was done from June 2015 to June 2016. All the pregnant women more than 37 weeks of gestation, with singleton pregnancies, getting admitted in the labour room with meconium stain liquor were included in the study. Results: Among 240 patients of meconium stain liquor, 122 patients had normal vaginal delivery, 15 patients had instrumental delivery and 103 patients were taken up for emergency lower segment caesarean section. Out of 240 newborns, two died in NICU. Hundred three (103) babies were admitted in NICU. Hundred thirty five (135) babies were healthy and were handed over to the mother. Conclusion: Meconium stain amniotic fluid was associated with higher rate of caesarean delivery and increased rate of NICU admission due to birth asphyxia.
