Abstract

The “all fours” maneuver for managing shoulder dystocia appears to be a rapid, safe and effective technique in women in labor with this problem. We report a case of shoulder dystocia managed successfully with complete vaginal delivery and no injury to mother and newborn after using the “all fours” maneuver. A brief literature review includes descriptions of other maneuvers for the problem of shoulder dystocia.
