Jesus Christ, the poor child. I would raise bloody murder if this happened to me, WTF were they doing?

Ive always thought forceps is bordering on barbaric anyway, and this just seals it for me! Clamping a small babies soft head between two huge metal prongs and dragging them into the world by their head! >:o( Surely we have moved on from that now!!! :eek A quick google throws up a few too many horror stories! :eek

I just can't believe they left it for so long, why wasn't she sectioned after the suction failed. It's unreal.

These stories are unbelievable!!! :eek Will these types of stories become more common with cuts in the health service, and trying to keep the number of c-sections down to save money?? O:|

I can't bring myself to open the articles but from your reactions I think forceps will be at the top of the [b:3orlr5k3]never[/b:3orlr5k3] list in the birth plan - beside resort to C-section before this option!

That is shocking - the poor little baby. I also feel for the mum and dad - they are both young and this would be hard to deal with.
