That is horrible and heartbreaking. If he had already lost practising rights in other states his credentials mustn't have been very good. Such a hard enough decision to get to that place already and to then have further debilitating complications. My brother and I were both big babies born via forceps deliveries and were delivered safely with no complications to us thankfully.

So sad can not imagine what those parents are going through
Dd1 was born using forceps :-( but at the time I had absolutely no idea there could be complications using them, I didn't even know what they looked like until the dr pulled them out

How horrific for the family and that poor little baby.
DD was delivered with the help of forceps. I was concerned about the possibility of forceps during my pregnancy and my OB said he only uses them in certain situations, otherwise he'd use the vacuum (if any assistance was needed that is). They were only used for a few seconds and I did the rest of the work pushing.
It sounds like this was caused by a caregivers ineptitude rather than the tool used.

I do have to agree with jellyfishie though, forceps have been used for many births successfully and a lot of people would choose forceps over a c/s plus forceps are used during c/s if a baby is stuck or to turn them like I had with DD3.
In this case it seems to be the negligence of the doctor if he has already been banned in 2 other states.

I agree with PPs that it sounds like it was not necessarily the tool but who's hands they were in. Absolute tragedy nonetheless!!
Both my babies were born via emergency CS and required forceps to get them out of my pelvis. DD you wouldn't have known, DS had a red mark on one side of his head that was gone the next day.
