CASE STUDY: Active Labor: Susan Wong Mrs. Wong, a first-time mother, is admitted to the birthing suite in early labor after spontaneous rupture  of membranes at home. She is at 38 weeks of gestation with a history of abnormal alpha-fetoprotein  levels at 16 weeks of pregnancy.  She was scheduled for ultrasonography to visualize the fetus to rule out an open spinal defect or Down  syndrome, but never followed through. Mrs. Wong and her husband disagreed about what to do (keep  or terminate the pregnancy) if the ultrasonography indicated a spinal problem, so they felt they did not  want this information.
