Letter: Caesareans: doctors owe duty to child

Sir: Dr Robert Forman (letter, 7 March) ignores the purpose of private medical insurance: namely to guard against unforeseen medical needs of an acute nature.

If every normal pregnancy was paid for, the premiums would have to be set at a level which would make it impossible for many people to protect themselves against much less routine events such as open heart surgery.
