As a mental health social worker, approved by the local authority, I knew exactly what doctors could do. Hence my flight.
Ms S has my fullest sympathy. Before her ordeal I am sure she was "in full possession of her senses" - by the time this saga is settled and over she may well be in need of the mental health services. Giving birth is stressful enough, but to have to contend with the full weight and wrath of the medical profession as well is enough to make any sane woman become ill. Ms S will need all the help and support we can give her.
