    She notes inquests into home birth tragedies seldom explore why the mothers have been so reluctant to give birth in hospital. "Situations like [the Thurgood-Gates case] ring warning bells for me but nobody seems to have asked: what happened in those three previous caesareans that made her so frightened to go back? Because surely there was a lot of grief and trauma before. And why was there no clinician who was prepared to support her in a controlled environment, who could acknowledge those fears, address them and help her give birth in a supported way? As carers, we must not have looked after her very well."

    Exactly. A system that allows women traumatised by natural birth to have elective caesareans should also be flexible enough to help women traumatised by medical births to go the natural route.

    This was a really good article.
