An Italian woman whose daughter will be adopted in the UK after a court ordered caesarian saw her give birth in this country has spoken about how she is, "suffering like an animal."
The woman told Italian newspaper La Repubblica:
I want my daughter back, I’m suffering like an animal. They forced me to have a caesarean without telling me anything. The day of the birth, I thought they were just moving me from one room to another, while I was saying I wanted to go back to Italy. I was sedated. When I woke up she wasn’t there any more. They’d taken her from me.
It was a caesarean birth which was forced upon me, I wasn’t even told.
I did not give my consent, verbal or written, to the adoption of my child. The natural father, who is from Senegal, and one of my American relatives were prepared to take the little one into their care. But the English social services ignored them. Why? Why did nobody help me?
