Liberal Democrat MP John Hemming has taken up the case of a mentally-ill mother whose unborn child was delivered by caesarean section by order of a court.
The girl, who is now 15 months old, is being put up for adoption despite opposition from the mother, who is an Italian national.
Mr Hemming told ITV News he had spoken to her and "she would like to send a message of thanks to all the British people who have offered their messages of support".
