Smooth and gentle delivery with the Medela VAD solution
Vacuum assisted delivery is used to aid birth when labor has become prolonged and the mother is experiencing extreme stress and difficulties. Vacuum delivery helps guide the baby out of the birth canal more rapidly. An alternative to a forceps delivery, vacuum birth can help avoid injury to the baby or a cesarean section.
During a vacuum assisted delivery, the soft suction cup of the vacuum is applied to the baby's head, and the vacuum helps guide the baby out of the birth canal. Advanced vacuum delivery systems support gentle, smooth delivery and allow obstetricians to execute safe, individualized interventions.
