Letter: In Brief

Sir: Four years ago I gave birth to a 9lb 6oz son at home after a labour of two hours and 20 minutes. From your report "Labour risk for big babies" (7 July) it seems that this generally healthy size will be seen as another excuse to deny home births and probably encourage intervention. I am currently booked for another home birth and hope against hope that this time my worst fears will not come to pass.
