What risks are associated with forceps deliveries?

When you check into a New York hospital in anticipation of giving birth, your main goal is probably to have a smooth, easy delivery so you can leave soon after with a happy, healthy baby. Regrettably, though, not all births are simple and seamless, and when they become particularly difficult, your physician may need to use forceps to help remove your baby from the birth canal.

According to the Mayo Clinic, a forceps delivery, as the name implies, involves a physician using a tong-like medical device to help extract your baby from the birth canal. While certain circumstances may warrant a forceps delivery, there are risks involved with having one. Your doctor may decide to move forward with a forceps delivery if, for example, your labor is failing to progress as it should, or if your baby might face danger if he or she remains in the birth canal any longer.

So, what types of risks do forceps deliveries present? When you have a forceps delivery, both you and your baby face certain risks. Your baby can potentially experience bleeding in the skull, seizures or even skull fractures during this type of delivery, and he or she may, too, suffer minor facial injuries or weakness within the facial muscles.

As a mother who has a forceps delivery, you may suffer injuries to your bladder or urethra during the birthing process, and you may, too, experience uterine rupture. You also run the risk of lower genital tract tears and pain in your perineum when a doctor uses forceps to deliver your child.
