Well obviously it's sometimes necessary. But sometimes just because a baby isn't crying doesn't mean it's not breathing. Water babies often don't cry because it's a very smooth transition. You can tell by looking at their chest if they are breathing. Also, they are getting oxygen through their cord so it's okay if they are a little slow to breathe. Although you should always taking a baby's breathing seriously, it is not always the "emergency" that you think it might be if they are a little slow to start, as long as the cord is nice and thick and pulsing, giving them blood, and thus, oxygen.

Depends whether the baby is having trouble breathing or not if you need to suction. Some babies aren't able to work out all the mucus and suctioning helps. Others are able to start expelling it as soon as the head comes out and the rest of it comes out within the first minute or so of life. In that case, you probably won't need to suction. The drawbacks of suctioning is sometimes you can actually just push the mucus further down, and also, it can be uncomfortable for the baby to have a plastic thing swishing around their mouth and nose during the first moments of life.
