Last week, there has been a lot of coverage about a woman who was forced to have a cesarean after being deemed ‘unfit’ to take care of the baby once it is born.

Now a second woman may be forced to have a baby snatched from her womb.

In the first case, social services reportedly obtained permission from a High Court to forcibly remove an unborn child from its mother’s womb by caesarean section. The secretive Court Order was granted on the basis the woman had suffered a mental breakdown.

The story was originally reported in the Telegraph, which claimed that the woman was an Italian national, and had visited the UK on a business trip last year when she suffered a panic attack. She called the police who subsequently took her to a psychiatric facility where she was sectioned under the Mental Health Act.

Members of her family said the panic attack was caused by her failure to take medication for bipolar disorder, which she had been diagnosed with in Italy.

After spending just over a month in ward, the woman was sedated and subjected to a caesarean section procedure to remove the unborn child from her womb, without her permission.

The woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, had come to Britain in July last year to attend a training course with an airline at Stansted Airport in Essex.

When she woke up she was told that the child had been delivered by C-section and taken into care, after Essex social services obtained a court order.

In February, the mother, who had gone back to Italy, returned to Britain to request the return of her daughter at a hearing at Chelmsford Crown Court.
Her lawyers say that she had since resumed taking her medication, and that the judge formed a favourable opinion of her. But he still ruled that the child should be put up for adoption because of the risk that she might suffer a relapse.

This is despite the fact that she had other relatives come forward and offer to take care of the baby if she was unable to.

In the latest case, another woman be forced to undergo the same procedure following a hearing in the Court of Protection in London, after the judge was told the woman had mental health difficulties.

It was decided that she lacked the mental capacity to make a potentially life-saving decision if doctors decided that a caesarean section was needed when she was in labour.

The judge concluded that it was in the best interests of the woman – who is around 36 weeks pregnant – to plan ahead. The woman cannot be named for legal reasons.
