In brief: See below

Vacuum extractors have replaced forceps for many situations in which assistance is required to achieve vaginal delivery.
Compared with metal-cup vacuum extractors, soft-cup devices are easier to use and cause fewer neonatal scalp injuries; however, they detach more frequently. Vacuum extractors can cause neonatal injury. These devices should be employed when indicated, usually for a nonreassuring.
