We don't hear about assisted delivery as an intervention as commonly as we hear about Caesarean birth.

BUT more than a third of mamas having their first baby will have their baby born with help from forceps or the vacuum.

Seems like something we should know about right?

In this podcast we talk about:

  • When you need assistance in your delivery
  • What type of assistance is used in what circumstance
  • The risks and benefits of different procedures
  • The questions you should ask you health provider

Why did we start this podcast? Well we think there is a barrier for women to get EXPERT pregnancy info that is practical, relatable and easy to understand.

Dr Pat has helped 1000s of women have their babies and through this we know that this kind of information given to a woman at the right time can totally change her experience of pregnancy and birth.

We invite you to be our part of our family over on Instagram @grow_my_baby
