Improper Use of Vacuum During Delivery
Talk to Our Weston Birth Injury Attorneys About Your Case Today!
Vacuum extraction is one method doctors use to help deliver babies during a difficult birth. During a contraction, a doctor will apply a soft or hard cup to the top and back of a baby’s head. These along with suction can be used to help pull the baby through the birth canal. However, this tool and other birth-assisting tools have been used for decades and have been linked to many medical issues. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has even warned using a vacuum extractor can unnecessarily risk the infant’s health.
