Study: Delivery Trauma Linked to Forceps, Vacuum-Extraction

Forceps and vacuum-assisted deliveries can cause injury to infants, including cranial hemorrhaging, skull fractures, brachial plexus injury, uterine rupture, and cephalohematoma. These injuries may lead to infant brain damage, developmental delays, and conditions such as cerebral palsy.  In 2017, a study published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal reported that newborns are 80% more likely to experience severe complications when forceps or vacuums are used, compared to deliveries by C-section.

If your child was born with the assistance of forceps or a vacuum and sustained an injury, please call us today at 877-262-9767 for a free consultation.
