The latest woman was recruited at Princess Anne Hospital on 13 June 2018

What is the purpose of the study?

Currently mothers are not routinely given antibiotics after a forceps or ventouse delivery. The aim of this study is to find out if giving mothers a single dose of antibiotics is effective at preventing infection after forceps or ventouse deliveries. There are concerns about over prescribing antibiotics but infections can be very serious, so this is an important question to answer. We really don’t know if giving a single dose of antibiotics makes a difference.
