Key interventions including induction with prostaglandins and caesarean section were significantly higher in the latent phase group than the active phase group. [21 % versus 3 %, p < 0.05] and [47 % versus 6 %, p < 0.05] respectively. Spontaneous vertex delivery was higher among pregnant women admitted initially in active phase than in latent phase groups [88 % versus 47 % (p < 0.01)]. There were more women in the active phase group who sustained genital tract tear and postpartum haemorrhage than in the latent phase group [44 % versus 36 %, (p < 0.05)] and 28 % versus 10 % (p < 0.05) respectively. It was also observed that the mean rank of APGAR score was better in children of Active phase patients (112.63) as compared to latent phase group (87.50) (p < 0.001).
