The use of forceps during delivery

Doctors sometimes use a tool called forceps as a delivery assistance aid during vaginal deliveries in North Carolina and around the country. The tool is used to guide a baby's head through the birth canal if the mother is having difficulty pushing or the baby is in distress. Although forceps can be safely used to speed up the delivery process, there are also some potential risks to both the mother and the baby when forceps are used.
