A Cesarean Section performed in the second stage of labour affects around 1.5-2% of all births, and carries an increased risk of trauma for both the mother and her baby1, 2. Intra-operative complications account for the majority of morbidity and often occur as a result of the increased manipulation required to deliver a deeply impacted fetal head.
Fetal Pillow® is very simple to use, it is inserted during patient preparation and does not delay starting the procedure.
Fetal Pillow® enables a gentle and controlled elevation of the deeply impacted head. It is designed to ensure safer and easier delivery, which helps to reduce trauma to both mother and baby.
Fetal Pillow® reduces intra-partum and post-partum complications. There is also a significant reduction in blood loss, operating time and length of stay.
Fetal Pillow is intended to elevate a deeply impacted fetal head and facilitate delivery of the fetus in women requiring a Cesarean Section at full dilation or those requiring a Cesarean Section after a failed instrumental vaginal delivery.
Fetal Pillow is indicated for use at a gestational age ≥37 weeks.
