Wewe is right. There is a higher chance of an assisted delivery with an epidural, as the normal sensation is not there, but it is not always necessary.

With Epidural they inject epidural in your spine that will numb your bodyfron waits going down. The forcepts are only used if there is a need to assist whils t your push to get the baby out. They will not hamr your baby as they dont squeez but just hold on to the sides of the baby' s head.
