It looks like AZ laws are fairly similar to CO - other than the placenta needing to be out in 40 minutes. Also, they define what "normal progress" means (ridiculous). I'm fine with 2g, but that's about it!
2. During labor, the condition of the mother and fetus shall be assessed upon initial contact, every half hour in active labor until completely dilated, and every 15 to 20 minutes during pushing, after the bag of water has ruptured or until the newborn is delivered. Care shall include the following:
a. Checking of vital signs every 2 to 4 hours and an initial physical assessment of the mother;
b. Assessment of fetal heart tones every 30 minutes in active first stage labor, and every 15 minutes during second stage, following rupture of the amniotic bag or with any significant change in labor patterns;
c. Periodic assessment of contractions, fetal presentation, dilation, effacement, and position by vaginal examination;
d. Determination of the progress of active labor for primiparas by determining if dilation occurs at an average of 1 cm/hr until completely dilated, and a second stage not to exceed 2 hours;
e. Determination of a normal progress of active labor for multigravidas by determining if dilation occurs at an average of 1.5 to 2 cm/hr until completely dilated, and a second stage not to exceed 1 hour;
f. Maintenance of proper fluid balance for the mother throughout labor as determined by urinary output and monitoring urine for presence of ketones, at least every 2 hours; and
g. Assisting in support and comfort measures to the mother and family.
3. After delivery of the newborn, care shall include the following:
a. Assessment of the newborn at 1 minute and 5 minutes to determine the Apgar scores;
b. Physical assessment of the newborn for any abnormalities;
c. Inspection of the mother's perineum for lacerations; and
d. Delivery of the placenta within 40 minutes during which time the midwife shall assess for signs of separation, frank or occult bleeding, examine for intactness, and determine the number of umbilical cord vessels.
