To assess whether ultrasound methods can predict outcome of operative vaginal deliveries in nulliparous women at term with singleton pregnancies and prolonged second stage of labor.
To compare different ultrasound assessments Compare digital assessments and ultrasound findings. Investigate if movement of the fetal head during active pushing is a predictive factor
- Ultrasound measurements cannot predict outcomes of operative vaginal delivery.
- Ultrasound is not better than digital examination in predicting delivery outcome.
- Movement of fetal head with active pushing is not a predictive factor.

Women in active second stage of labour
- Time from start of vacuum assisted traction to delivery [ Time Frame: Active second stage of labor to1 hour after delivery ]The duration of a vacuum extraction will be measured. Therefore, the time frame is for this variable is only the second stage of labor. However, the time frame including all variables will be from the start of active second stage of labor - 1 hour after delivery.
- Successful/failed vaginal operative delivery (vaginal delivery vs. cesarean section [ Time Frame: Active second stage of labour ]Successful or failed operative deliveries will be recorded. The time frame is also for this variable only the second stage of labor.
- Apgar score [ Time Frame: first ten minutes after delivery ]Apgar score is assessed after 1,5 and 10 minutes
- ph and base excess in umibical cord [ Time Frame: first 5 minutes after delivery ]blood test from the umbilical board
- birth weight and head circumference [ Time Frame: First hour after delivery ]
