    There isn't an ICD code for "active labor" per se, but there is a code for "Threatened Labor," which includes "Threatened labor NOS without delivery" (644.10 or 644.13).

    If they are in Active Labor, then they will be admited , which then you would code the specified Delivery code which the Physician should state on the chart
