Forceps Delivery

Birth Injury Lawyers in Denver, CO

When necessary, obstetricians and labor nurses may use forceps to aid in childbirth. Forceps are designed to cradle the baby’s head, allowing the delivery doctor or nurse to guide the baby through the birth canal. Use of forceps is most common when there are concerns about the mother’s or baby’s health and the birthing process needs to be hastened in order to reduce the risk of injuries or complications.

Generally, doctors and nurses only use forceps under these limited circumstances because the use of forceps involves risks of its own. When used improperly or under the wrong circumstances (for example, if the baby’s head is too large), forceps can cause serious injuries to both the mother and the child.

While medical professionals often use forceps under stressful and time-sensitive situations, this is not an excuse for making harmful mistakes, and those who make mistakes can be held liable for medical malpractice.
