  • They had to use a vacuum to get my son out - no long term consequences. They've been using forceps for years, the vacuum isn't that much different.

  • My sister had to have the vacuum when delivery my niece. It saved my nieces life. She was in ICU for breathing difficulties for 3 days. She's now a happy, healthy, and bright 10 year old.
