Arrested labour may occur when rotation and/or descent of the head does not occur:

If there is fetal distress, consider delivery by caesarean section if quick and easy vaginal delivery is not possible
:: If there is still no descent after a trial of labour and the head is engaged and at 1 cm or more below the ischial spines, deliver by forceps or ventouse
:: If the head is >1/5 palpable on abdominal examination, deliver by caesarean section
:: If there is evidence of obstruction or fetal distress at any stage, deliver by caesarean section.
