Another division of the care of obstetric cases is the management of a case during the labor itself. What I have said about the care of a case before labor begins I believe is correct. I am well aware, however, that the very great care which Nature gives to women allows the neglect of these duties of the physician which I have outlined to be fraught with relatively little harm, but the neglect of our plain duty in the conducting of every case of labor in itself threatens the life of our patient.
