Message length 300 characters recommended

Your healthcare provider should only use a vacuum to help deliver your baby if there is a medical need for one. A vacuum has risks to both mom and baby. A vacuum can cause a blood clot to form under the baby's scalp. A vacuum is generally used when a mom is unable to get her baby out on her own or if the delivery needs to be sped up due to an emergency situation.
