Auscultation is an evidence-based method of fetal surveillance during labor for women with low risk pregnancies and considered one component of comprehensive efforts to reduce the primary cesarean rate and promote vaginal birth. Many clinicians are not familiar with auscultation practice. This practice monograph includes information on auscultation techniques; interpretation and documentation; clinical decision-making and interventions; communication; education, staffing, legal issues, and strategies to promote implementation of auscultation into practice.
