Pethidine to the mother in labour should not be given in a dosage of more than 50 mg. as recommended.

The prompt recognition and management of asphyxiated babies would prevent brain damage.

The 1-minute Apgar score is important for management of the baby and the 5-minute score as an indication of possible neurological damage.

The number of abnormal deliveries should be reduced.
