Given the current circumstances, our office staff will primarily be working remotely. We will have a reduced number of people on site from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. Our staff will still be responding to emails and phone calls and continuing to do the necessary things to care for our clients. We ask that if you do not need to visit our office in person, you stay home and contact us via telephone or email. We are still here to serve and hope that everyone stays safe and healthy.

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.
