Coping with the loss of a baby is unimaginable but tragically we know this happens all too often. Recently, a case has been reported whereby a baby lost his life whilst being born. The hospital failed to carry out checks in respect of the position of the baby and therefore failed to recognised the baby’s breech position. This resulted in complications during the birth which tragically resulted in loss of life. The Trust in question has admitted liability but settlement has not yet been reached.
