Labor and Delivery Procedures
Procedures that help with labor and delivery may be needed, particularly when certain problems occur during pregnancy or during labor and delivery. These procedures include the artificial starting of labor (induction of labor), hastening (augmentation) or slowing of labor, operative vaginal delivery (using a vacuum extractor or forceps), and cesarean delivery (C-section).
