Vacca Research is dedicated to providing information about childbirth for Obstetricians, Midwives and Birth Attendants, for the benefit of Mothers and their Babies.
Founded by Aldo Vacca Vacca Research aims to provide information about childbirth for Obstetricians, Midwives and Birth Attendants. Vacca Research was formed to develop programs for self-directed learning in the management of childbirth. Vacca Research is now operated by Ms Janet Vacca, Nurse and Midwife.
The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RANZCOG) has established an Aldo Vacca Award to commemorate Aldo's legacy.
In 2014 Aldo Vacca passed away. Below is part of a tribute from Dr. W. Dean Wallace, a very close friend of Aldo's:
Aldo has left a great legacy to the world of safer delivery for moms and babies. As you know his lifelong work has been dedicated to the welfare of mothers and babies of which he has made an extensive and long-lasting contribution.
His Handbook of Vacuum Extraction in Obstetric Practice, and his everyday hands on techniques for VE delivery are without question the world standard for proper vacuum delivery. His colleagues, peers, students and friends throughout the world attest to this fact.
I feel that as his colleagues, friends, students and associates we all have a responsibility to continue his work in educating obstetricians and clinicians to these valued techniques that he has provided.
Aldo’s work and your support of this work have and will continue to make a significant difference in better practical operative obstetrics. As a memorial to him, I feel that we have the responsibility to carry forward his work and teachings.
