Background: Vacuum assisted delivery is fairly common worldwide. Subgaleal Hematoma (SGH) is rare and lethal complication of vacuum assisted delivery. Intracranial Hemorrhage is even rarer. Method: It is prospective observational study mentioning six neonates which were diagnosed with subgaleal hematoma following vacuum assisted delivery. Results: Out of 6 neonates two babies were diagnosed with Acute Kidney Injury (AKI). Both of them had serious intracranial hemorrhage (subarachnoid hemorrhage and Grade 4 Intraventricular Hemorrhage). Conclusion: Since there is recent surge in vacuum delivery it is important that obstetric care providers are aware of neonatal risks and related co-morbidities associated with such deliveries. Six Neonates should be monitored for diagnosis of intracranial bleed and acute kidney injury as early treatment can be implemented. Early suspicion especially when baby have inappropriate weight gain can be helpful.
