An obstetrician may utilize an array of techniques and instruments during delivery, each with its own applications, cautionary measures and risks. Critical steps before and during delivery include:
- Accurate assessment of the baby’s size and position, along with other factors, to determine whether a C-section (cesarean) should be offered or performed to minimize injury risk
- Appropriate, timely decisions about the use of operative techniques such as forceps or vacuum extraction during a difficult delivery
- Informed consent and skilled use of the technique and instruments selected in order to minimize known risks of brain damage, shoulder dystocia, eye injuries and other severe birth trauma
