Forceps delivery is a type of assisted delivery that occurs when a special tool is used to help speed the delivery of a fetus and gently pull the baby out of the birth canal. Forceps are metal tools with long handles that cup around the babies head. The forceps are inserted inside the vagina, gently grip the head of the fetus, and the fetus is carefully maneuvered out of the birth canal.
Forceps delivery assists the mother’s pushing in order to help avoid a Cesarean-section delivery, if the mother is too exhausted to continue pushing, or when the mother or baby begin to show some signs of distress. In addition to forceps delivery, another type of assisted delivery is delivery with vacuum extraction.
