    I saw this the other day, so heartbreaking I cried for the little girl and I cried for her poor parents

    I'm in bed on my phone ATM and its hard to mod using the app, but I have just sent through a request to modland for someone else to hyperlink the text.

    I saw this story a few days ago and it broke my heart. My dd was a failed forceps delivery, and even though I was in no fit state to be saying no to the ob who recommended we try forceps, it didn't even cross my mind that in this day and age this type of tragedy can even occur. Rest in peace, sweet baby.

    So so sad. This is why I told my obstetrician that I didn't want my babies delivered using suction or forceps. It is so ********.

    This saddened me, I saw the headline a few days ago and opened the article, read a couple of lines and saw the photos, couldn't read anymore.
    Heartbreaking, devastating, so sad for the family

    This happened to my brother too. Perfectly healthy baby otherwise. It's really sad and it has made me terrified of interventions during labour.

    So tragic for the parents and the poor darling baby.


    However sounds like a problem with the doctor and not the forceps.


    It's actually a lot easier to deliver with forceps than a vaccum, and only forceps can be used with preterm babies.


    Vacuums also have their own individual risks that forceps don't have.


    Also if you're at the point that your debating a Caesarean section vs instrumental delivery, chances are that forceps are going to be needed during the Caesar anyway to deliver baby.


    Again tragic outcome, but banning forceps is not the answer.

    Yep. Improve the system so the dr's who are not licenced to practise in one location can't just pack up and ruin lives in another.

    I still have a dent in my skull from being born with a forceps delivery. I had a c/s 3 months ago and my Ob routinely uses forceps to extract babies during cesareans which made me so nervous.
