Description: Background: Midwives remain the major human resource for improving maternal health in communities especially by providing essential intrapartum care that is paramount in reducing maternal mortality. A paperless approach to the use of the partograph can ensure the use of the partograph by midwives in low resource settings thereby decreasing prolonged labours with its attendant morbidities. Aim: This study aimed to assess midwives’ satisfaction on the use of the paperless partograph in monitoring of labours in Katsina, Nigeria. Methodology: A descriptive cross-sectional research design was used. A total of 16 midwives employed in the delivery ward of the secondary care facility were purposefully recruited for the study. Using a researcher questionnaire, the opinion of the midwives working in the delivery ward were obtained. Results: The midwives reported satisfaction with the tool with an aggregate mean of 5.78 (constant mean = 4). Conclusion: the paperless partograph is a satisfactory tool that can be adopted for the monitoring of labours.
