Kiwi Delivery

At Grosvenor Gardens Healthcare, with premier locations in Belgravia and Dulwich, London, we specialise in providing expert, gentle care for mothers undergoing Kiwi delivery. Our experienced medical team is committed to supporting you through a safe and positive childbirth experience using the Kiwi vacuum.

What is Kiwi Delivery?

Kiwi delivery, also known as vacuum-assisted delivery, is a procedure used to aid the birthing process. It involves the use of a vacuum device with a soft cup that attaches to the baby’s head. The device helps guide the baby out of the birth canal while the mother pushes during a contraction.

Why Might You Need a Kiwi Delivery?

Kiwi delivery is often recommended under circumstances where a little extra help is needed during labour. It may be necessary if:

  • The labour is not progressing despite regular contractions.
  • The baby needs to be delivered quickly due to distress or other complications.
  • The mother is exhausted and unable to push effectively.
