"Midwives bought food as baby died"

The BBC web site's account of circumstances surrounding the death of Caitlin Coyne at the Royal Cornwall NHS Trust in February 2004. The BBC had obtained a copy of the independent review panel's inquiry report.

Results of a study by Thornton et al. in last week’s issue of The Lancet suggest that delaying delivery by a few days is as effective as immediate delivery for babies who have experienced fetal trauma. The study also showed that fetuses delivered without delay at 30 weeks or younger had an increased risk of infant disability compared with delayed delivery.
