In regards to stillbirth and the current law, it is deemed that a baby is not classed as human until he/she takes their first breath. In cases where a doctor or a NHS trust admits liability with respect to their actions led to a babies death, do you feel that the current law should be changed or extended to allow pregnant women the right to take civil or possible criminal action against the doctor or NHS trust. Although the law change or extension would have to be carefully considered, in clear cut cases where a doctors actions led to a babies death, should the law change? One area that I ask your view on is when a doctor or hospital admits to incorrectly classifying a CTG, that caused the stillbirth of a baby. The 2nd part is where a hospital admits they do not follow the correct escalation procedure. Finally where a hospital admits that they did not follow the correct procedure when dealing with a high risk pregnancy.
