Growth Charts - Clinical Application

Implementation of customised antenatal growth charts into clinical practice has been found to improve detection of fetal growth problems while reducing unnecessary interventions (see Literature). The RCOG Green Top Guideline 31 (PDF) recommends serial fundal height measurement using customised growth charts. However, their effectiveness can be compromised if protocols are not being adhered to, including a standardised method of fundal height measurement and recommendations for referral.

The Perinatal Institute offers training prior to implementation of customised charts into clinical practice. For further information, please contact Shani Taylor, Perinatal Institute - Tel:+44 (0)121 607 0127 E-Mail: shani.taylor@perinatal.org.uk
