This has been mentioned briefly above, but in all emergencies it helps to have someone looking at the clock, holding paper and pen. They can and should be spoken to as things are happening so that they document the important facts - otherwise if, as is often the case, this person is fairly junior, they may not know or understand exactly what is going on and therefore fail to document key activity. Once the emergency is over notes should be written carefully and comprehensively and signed legibly: this is the best time to account for what has happened and any relevant diagnosis, follow-up care plan and prognosis for future pregnancies should be spelt out clearly at this stage whenever possible.
