Guard the posterior vaginal wall with the fingers of your right hand.
Gently slide the forceps blade into the posterior vagina, guiding the heel of the blade into position with your thumb. The handle should follow in a downwards arc.
The handle and the shank should come to rest in a horizontal position. After both blades have been brought into position, check that their position relative to the suture lines is correct.
