Monitoring the progress of labour (child delivery) is essential for key clinical decisions to be taken to help manage the wellbeing of both the mother and child during delivery. The key parameters used by doctors and mid-wives to monitor labour progression are cervical dilation, uterine contractions, Fetal Heart Rate (FHR), Fetal Head Station (FHS) and Progression Angle (PA). In this paper, techniques used in monitoring the progress of child delivery are reviewed. In this review, we show how current techniques are used to measure key parameters with more accuracy and less discomfort to the expectant mother as compared to old techniques. Taxonomy of key parameters used for monitoring childbirth progress (cervical dilation and uterine contractions) is provided vis-à-vis old and novel techniques
