Many mothers who want to give birth choose normal delivery. Normal delivery is an option because the postpartum healing process is fast and also because the cost is not as expensive as cesarean delivery.
However, every mother certainly knows that normal childbirth has its own risks and difficulties. One of them is during the pushing process, if the mother is not pushing hard during the birth process, the birth process may require the help of the vacuum method.

Reporting from Healthline, there are 4 conditions that make mothers need to use the vacuum method during childbirth.
1. Mother is not strong enough to push
The normal delivery process certainly takes quite a long time, especially for mothers who are giving birth for the first time. Normal childbirth is divided into 2 stages, namely before giving birth and during delivery.
The stage before giving birth is the stage when the mother experiences contractions and the opening continues to increase. The time to increase the opening of the uterus certainly varies. For mothers who have just given birth, this process can take up to 20 hours or more.
After complete opening, Mother enters the second stage, namely labor. This stage can also take a long time, ranging from 1 to 2 hours. At this stage, quite a few mothers start to feel tired because they have endured the pain and have to push their little one out of the birth canal.
As a result, some mothers do not have enough energy to push and make the baby not come out. If something like this happens, the doctor will usually take vacuum measures, because if the baby is in the womb too long it will be dangerous.
2. Using an epidural
Epidural is an injection that is useful for relieving pain during contractions. This injection is given in the spine area, specifically in the lower back.
An epidural is usually an option if you can’t stand the pain of contractions. Epidurals work by blocking the nerve fibers that transmit pain signals. However, epidurals often prevent the nerves needed to push the baby out from working optimally.
As a result, Mother will find it difficult to push your little one out. This difficulty will again make the labor process take longer and your little one will be stuck in the womb. In cases like this, the doctor will definitely use a vacuum to provide assistance so that the baby can quickly come out of the mother’s womb.
