A lawyer for an Italian woman who reportedly had her baby forcibly removed by caesarean section by social workers has he has "never heard of anything like this in all my 40 years in the job.
Brendan Fleming told the Sunday Telegraph:
I can understand if someone is very ill that they may not be able to consent to a medical procedure, but a forced caesarean is unprecedented.
If there were concerns about the care of this child by an Italian mother, then the better plan would have been for the authorities here to have notified social services in Italy and for the child to have been taken back there.
