"And I just want to add to the previous post that if you're at the point where the doc is recommending forceps or vacuum assist, you're probably past the point of a c-section. Once the baby is in the birth canal there's no way to do a section. You can always ask to try a different position to get the baby to move down more quickly, like squatting or hands and knees. (just my 2 cents though)
Thanks Lizzy, wasn't aware of that, I'm glad you commented.
