I wanted to let you know about a Web site I recently launched on the topic of shoulder dystocia. It can be found at

My goal is to provide patients and the medical and legal communities with literature-based information on shoulder dystocia and brachial-plexus injuries. The site explores in depth the evidence for and against the predictability and preventability of shoulder dystocia, based on a review of more than 258 articles. It includes instructive illustrations.
