I live In Australia, every single member of my Family live in England except my two young girls that are one and three.
Today my sister had her second baby boy, Delivered by Forceps, he got stuck as did her first who was also delivered by forceps as he got stuck.
Today my sisters little boy has had seizures and fits and stopped breathing numerous times, Today my heart has broken. I cannot even see this baby and I love him already, I want to cuddle him and give him all my strength to use as his own strength. I want to hold my sister and tell her that there is no way on earth that the lord above would take such a precious bundle away, that she didn’t just carry a baby for 9 months just to have him cruelly taken away from her after such a short time. Its not fair and its not OK! its not acceptable.
why do these hospitals still insist on using Forceps, I have read horrible tales of how forceps have killed and permanently damaged people, I have read that babies have died when their parents have begged for C-sections and doctors have refused, because its cheaper for the NHS to push through. why if my sister had such a hard time only 16 months ago did the doctors and midwifes not realise that she just cannot deliver naturally, that she is not big enough to do it, why did they not plan a c-section instead of making risky decisions. if their is even the slightest chance a baby could die from these Forceps then they should be thrown out and never used.
