Ultimately, doctors should be trained in the methods to release a "stuck" baby. But..parents need to educate themselves too. ALL interventions, from routine unneccessary monitoring -which means Mom is on her back-not the best position to deliver a baby-to epidurals increase the risk factor hugely, this is not rocket science and is very well documented. The single thing any mother can do to prevent this injury is NOT to labour on her back, all fours increases the size of the birth cavity by up to one third, refuse interventions unless they are medically necessary -this includes induced births, often carried out for convenience and again a major risk factor. Educate yourself!
