Two hypothesis were formulated which are: The mean level of knowledge of partograph midwives is not significantly different as compared to component of partograph, the number of normal deliveries is significantly dependant of use of partograph. Literature review was done under historical background, theoretical and empirical framework of partograph use. In the study, population of midwives is 365 in the hospital and a sample size of 191 was used as obtained by Taro Yamane (1967) as well as 5010 past used labor records. Questionnaire was used for data collection. The information gathered from respondents were analyzed in percentage using tables, bar chart, pie chart, line chart and histogram using IBM SPSS software version. Hypothesis tested using chi square, the first hypothesis test shows that midwives knowledge level of partograph is significantly different to their knowledge of component of partograph, then hence the null hypothesis is rejected and alternative uphold. Test for hypothesis two also rejects the null hypothesis and uphold the alternative hence, number of normal deliveries conducted is significantly dependent on the use of partograph.
