Forcep Birth Injuries

Forceps — large clamps that are used to turn the baby into a proper direction during delivery — can be negligently used by doctors who use them incorrectly or without enough experience. Forceps often cause injury when they are placed on the wrong part of the baby’s head. They may also be used at the wrong stage of labor. And the birth injuries this misuse causes can be serious. Babies may experience skull fractures, brain injury, fractures internal bleeding and blood loss.

Vacuum Birth Injuries

Vacuum extractors use a soft plastic cap to suction the baby during each contraction, but they are known for causing a wide range of problems when used incorrectly. These include severe swelling of the scalp and subgaleal hematoma — bleeding between the skull and the scalp — that can lead to permanent brain damage and death.
