Cephalopelvic Disproportion Claim

What Is Cephalopelvic Disproportion (CPD)?

Cephalopelvic disproportion, sometimes also referred to as fetopelvic disproportion, occurs when the baby’s head is too large to fit through the birth canal. CPD may be caused by gestational diabetes, post-dates pregnancy, small maternal pelvis, abnormally shaped pelvis, or abnormal presentation of the baby. If CPD is suspected, medical providers may perform clinical pelvimetry. Pelvimetry is the measurement of the pelvis which may be done by pelvic exam, x-ray, CT scan, or MRI. When CPD occurs, Cesarean section delivery may be necessary.
