A hospital has defended itself after it allowed a woman to have her pet dog present at the birth of her child. The dog was there for the duration of the labour at St Michael's Hospital in Bristol.
The hospital said the woman was able to bring the dog into the delivery suite because he's a certified therapy dog who regularly visits patients.
