  • My sister had one and it looked terrible. Blood literally shot across the room when her daughter came out. I even got blood on me! She had a really bad tear after.

  • Poor mama. I have not but I've watched videos of them and they look excruciating. How are you healing? After my first birth the midwives gave me frozen pads with witch hazel on them. They felt amazing and really helped with the healing.

    I don't know anything about your specific situation but I know most forcep deliveries can be avoidable. Let me know if you're interested and I'd be happy to share what I know so that if you have any more children you might be able to avoid that pain.
