Oregon Birth Injury Claims

A type of vaginal delivery that may be required for the safety of your baby is a forceps delivery. During this type of delivery, the delivery team uses forceps, an instrument that resembles two large spoons, to help grasp and guide the baby from the birth canal. Sometimes, the child can be injured during this type of delivery. If your child has been injured during childbirth from forceps, contact an attorney.

A forceps delivery is used most often during vaginal deliveries that are not progressing. If the mother is pushing during contractions, yet the baby is not progressing down and their safety requires an immediate delivery, the doctor may turn to forceps for assistance.

If a doctor or delivery team does not use the forceps correctly, they may cause injury to both the mother and child. Possible injuries the mother is at risk for include those that are in line with vaginal delivery, but the chances of injury increase when forceps are used. The baby’s injuries range from facial muscle weakness to skull fractures and seizures.
