This Practice Bulletin was developed by the ACOG Committee on Practice Bulletins—Obstetrics with the assistance of Andrew Satin, MD. The information is designed to aid practitioners in making decisions about appropriate obstetric and gynecologic care. These guidelines should not be construed as dictating an exclusive course of treatment or procedure. Variations in practice may be warranted based on the needs of the individual patient, resources, and limitations unique to the institution or type of practice.
