  • No, but they used the vacuum extractor, and ended up having to break his shoulder bone because he was stuck.

  • Didn't need it for my three children but they had to use it on my mom to get me out. I was too big for her tiny body LOL... She had it rough from the start with me..

  • No, but they had gotten them out and then thought he was up way too far to try to reach him... I ended up with a C-section instead
