Consortium on Safe Labor (SAFE)
The National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), is leading an observational study entitled "Consortium on Safe Labor." The primary purpose of this study is to describe contemporary labor progression and to evaluate the timing of Cesarean delivery in women with labor protraction and arrest. Qualified institutions in the United States already selected for participation will contribute existing observational data to the Data Coordinating Center, with the goal to capture 200,000 deliveries.
