The purpose of this study is to test the hypothesis that using the BirthTrack for management of labor shortens the time to delivery and thus improves both maternal and perinatal outcomes.

Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Management of Labor Using the BirthTrack Computerized Labor Monitoring System
