Recognition of Disproportion
Disproportion between the fetus and the amount of space available in the bony pelvis varies considerably in degree. In the great majority of patients nature has provided a comfortable margin for the fetus, so that large women will often bear normally large children easily, while small women bear normally small children just as easily. In certain cases, however, the fetus is too large for the pelvis regardless of the type of the pelvis. In other cases the shape of the pelvis is such that the space available for the child is reduced to a serious degree even though the various cardinal diameters may be of normal size.
