Intermittent fetal monitoring

Fifteen minutes of every hour sounds excessive to me. Your thoughts?

    That is what my OOH midwife did while I was in labor.

    It feels a little excessive too. 15 mins every 2 hours wouldn't be so bad.

    That's the time frame I had. 

    I had to sign a consent form stating that I had been informed of the "risks" of fetal monitoring, including fetal death(!).  I SHOULD have stipulated what I agreed to, but it turned into 15 minutes every hour.
