Vacuum on my baby? Feels scary!
Normally labor for the first child consumes 12-20 hours. In case of a second delivery, labor lasts for around 7-10 hours (without any complications).
Labor has two stages. In the second stage of labor, the cervix is dilated. The uterine contractions and your force applied to push the baby, helps it to move down the birth canal. A mother might need to keep pushing for a couple of hours.
If the mother gets exhausted, the second stage of labor is prolonged. Making the baby wait in the birth canal for longer time is never a good idea! In order to ensure the safety of the baby, the doctor goes for a vacuum assisted delivery.
This is extremely safe and there is nothing to worry.

How is this done?

  • Once a mother is sure that she cannot push anymore, doctors start with the vacuum assisted delivery. Trust your doctor completely. This is done only to avoid the risk with your baby.
  • The position of your baby’s head is measured with respect to the narrowest point in the birth canal. This is called ischial spines. When your baby’s head is at this point it is said that your baby is at ‘zero station’.
  • The amniotic sac is ruptured for easy access towards the baby’s head.
  • The mother may receive a local anaesthesia to make the entire area numb.
  • The doctor will apply a round, flexible cup on the baby’s head. This cup is connected to an electric suction pump.
  • Due to the pressure in the suction pump, the baby’s face is auto rotated, in case the position is not correct.
  • The suction helps the baby move out smoothly through the birth canal. Besides, the mother may be asked to push for support.

 What are the reasons that may invite the situation of assisted vacuum delivery?
Some of the most commonly witnessed reasons are,

  • Prolonged labor
  • Mother getting exhausted
  • Strong epidural
  • A history of stroke
  • Neurological issues
  • Hypertension
  • Baby facing the wrong side

What after assisted delivery?

  • There may be some soreness and a bruised feeling. Swelling and stitches may make it difficult to sit down.
  • Follow the prescribed medication strictly for faster healing.
  • Do not have sex till 6 weeks as the body takes time to heal.
  • If, what happened during the delivery makes a space in your mind, talk to your doctor. Try to accept the fact that assisted delivery was necessary.
  • Use a valley cushion for comfort.

To keep your muscles strong enough, so that you do not give up in the end, practising prenatal exercises is a must. Prenatal exercises strengthen your muscles to a great extent. This also helps you recover faster after the delivery. Do not feel low, even if the need for a vacuum delivery arises. Ultimately, in the end, you win!! You have your baby, with its twinkling eyes staring at you and wanting to tell you many things!!
After all, for a mother, winning isn’t everything… it’s the only thing!!
