- Operative delivery is a vaginal delivery with the assistance of forceps or vacuum extraction.
- Forceps are of several types and the selection is determined by evaluation of the pelvis and presenting part, and the physician’s training and preferences.
- The vacuum cap is a simple device which is placed on the vertex using a small hand-held vacuum pump; some physicians leave the vacuum on between contractions and some release the vacuum. The caps are set to pop off if the vacuum pressure is too high.
- Both procedures work with the uterine contractions, gently assisting and guiding the fetus out during contractions, and resting between them. Neither is used between contractions.
