Dr. Jones Explains Shoulder Dystocia

Posted on 09 December 2011 by Birth of a Mom

Shoulder dystocia occurs when the shoulder of the baby impacts on the mom’s pubic bone. This week we saw Beth’s experience with shoulder dystocia on episode 2 of One Born Every Minute. In this video, Dr. Jones explains how Riverside Methodist Hospital Labor and Delivery handles shoulder dystocia.

“Shoulder dystocia happens about 5% of the time in our deliveries. When they do occur they are a surgical emergency. What I mean by that is we have people running in the room, we need extra hands at the time of the delivery to help us dislodge that shoulder.”
