Dystocia is a frequent complication during labour among Danish women. 36% of all primiparous women in Denmark experienced dystocia during labour in 2016. Even though it is a common complication and medicine is needed to treat it, little is known about what causes and prevents the development. The aim of this study is to search in literature and hereby give an overview of what is known about risk and preventive factors of dystocia. Hopefully, this overview can guide further research and guidelines.
