Assisted vaginal delivery is vaginal delivery of a baby performed with the help of forceps or a vacuum device. It sometimes is called operative vaginal delivery. Today, assisted vaginal delivery is done in about 3% of vaginal deliveries in the United States.

In many situations, assisted vaginal delivery is a safe alternative to cesarean delivery. Assisted vaginal delivery usually is chosen when your obstetrician feels that it is the option most likely to deliver your baby successfully and safely. Like cesarean delivery, assisted vaginal delivery has both benefits and risks.
