Lifestyle has a considerable influence on periods. Poor diet and taking a lot of stress can delay periods by several days or even a month. Other reasons may include polycystic ovarian syndrome for which Gynecologists may prescribe birth control pills.
Vaginal discharge is the body’s cleansing mechanism. It is normal to have clear or milky discharge, but in case you notice a variation in the color, odor or volume (unusually high), it may be a sign of infection. Rush to your doctor for immediate evaluation.
Urinary tract infection can quickly spread inside your system and causes a burning sensation while urinating. It might as well be a temporary infection, but the sure-shot way to know is to ask an expert and get yourself examined.
When forceps or a ventouse suction cup are used to assist in delivering the baby, this is referred to as an assisted birth  also referred to as an instrumental delivery. Forceps and a ventouse are only used when absolutely essential for you and your infant. When a woman has previously experienced a spontaneous vaginal birth, assisted delivery is less common. Your obstetrician or midwife should go over the benefits of an aided delivery with you as well as the options for the instrument and the procedure itself. Prior to beginning the operation, your permission will be required. If you haven’t already had an epidural, you’ll typically receive a local anesthetic to numb your vagina and the area between your vagina and anus (perineum)..


A ventouse (vacuum cup) is attached to the baby’s head by suction. A soft or hard plastic or metal cup is attached by a tube to a suction device. The cup fits firmly on to your baby’s head. During a contraction and with the help of your pushing, the obstetrician or midwife gently pulls to help deliver your baby. If you need an assisted birth and you are giving birth at less than 36 weeks pregnant, then forceps may be recommended over ventouse.
The baby’s head is suctioned to a ventouse (vacuum cup).A tube connects a suction device to a soft, hard, or metal cup.Your baby’s head is firmly supported by the cup.The obstetrician or midwife gently pulls to assist in delivering the baby while you push during a contraction.
Forceps may be suggested over ventouse if you need an aided birth and you are giving birth before 36 weeks of pregnancy.


Forceps are smooth metal instruments that look like large spoons or tongs. They’re curved to fit around the baby’s head. The forceps are carefully positioned around your baby’s head and joined together at the handles.

The shape of forceps is similar to that of giant spoons or tongs.To fit around the baby’s head, they are curved.
Your baby’s head is delicately wrapped by the forceps, which are then connected at the handles.

An obstetrician gently pulls to assist in the delivery of your baby while you push during a contraction. Forceps come in a variety of varieties.Some of them are made expressly to turn the baby into the proper position for birth, such as when it is lying with its back to you (occipito-posterior position) or to one side (occipito-lateral position).

Why to use a venthouse or forceps?

About 1 in 8 births require an assisted delivery, which may be necessary if:
Usually, a pediatrician is on hand to assess your newborn’s health right after birth.You might receive antibiotics through a drip following the birth to avoid any infection incase .
