A judgement that ruled a child delivered by caesarean following a court order should remain in care, has been made public.
Judge Newton, sitting at Chelmsford County Court, said in the ruling he hoped the mother - who was mentally-ill at the time of her daughter's birth - would meet with the people who are to adopt her child.
I very much hope that the mother on whom I concentrate will be able to have an opportunity of meeting the adopters. It is important for P to know that her birth family, as I know they do, will continue to take a continuing interest in her. It will not be straightforward. It will not be easy. The mother, I know, is to return to Italy shortly but if it is possible and a meeting is offered I very much hope that the mother would be able to play her part in that.
