"Labour ward & forceps delivery"

I went into labour with my second son in June 2015, my son's heart rate was dipping during pushing and my pushing then had to be assisted with the use of forceps. I was not told of any risks posed to my son or my body and can not believe they are still legal to use when they can clearly cause so much damage. Thankfully my son was born with nothing more than the sclera part of his eyes bloodshot and temporarily damaged (redness upon the white area). Myself on the other-hand suffered a lot of damage, the use of these forceps tore my canal, muscles and pelvic floor muscles to which now I have a bladder, uterine and rectum prolapse (these organs have now lost their support and have descended into my vaginal walls) mothers should be warned about these possible risks before the procedure begins I feel mislead and devastated. I would of opted for a c-section if I had known these types of risks was involved and that I would have to live with prolapse for the rest of my life and I'm only 25! Do not ever agree to a forceps delivery.
