Large series suggest that, when used with appropriate care and skill, rotational deliveries with Kjelland’s forceps are a safe and useful procedure. We surveyed obstetric trainees in Australia to assess their experience with, and intentions to use, Kjelland’s forceps. The response rate was 65%, and it was uncommon for even senior trainees to have performed more than ten Kjelland’s forceps rotations during their training. Ninety‐four per cent of final‐year trainees stated they did not intend to use Kjelland’s forceps in their consultant practice.
