The pattern of cervical dilatation during labour in parturients at Chandigarh was determined following a prospective partographic study of 100 normal labours. The mean duration of active phase was 8.52 years in nulliparas and 5.81 hours in multiparas (p< 0.01). the mean rate of cervical dilatation was1.23 cm/ hour in nulliparas and 1.86 cm/ hour in multiparas, without terminal deceleration as full dilatation of cervix was reached. Booked patients showed reduction in the durations of latent and active phases. The station of foetal head and cervical dilatation at admission significantly affected the course of labour.
