Ventouse

Ventouse is a vacuum device used to assist the delivery of a baby when labor has not progressed adequately. It is an alternative to a forceps delivery and caesarean section. It is not usually used when the baby is in the breech position or for premature births. This technique is also called vacuum-assisted vaginal delivery or vacuum extraction (VE). The use of VE is generally safe, but can rarely have negative effects on both the mother and the child.

Usage

For Vacuum Extraction procedure.
