Can I claim compensation from my midwife?
Posted on 10th October 2019
I think it is safe to say that most of us are concerned that we are not receiving enough vitamins from our everyday diet, especially if you are expecting your first child. Whether the little bundle of joy is going to be a boy or a girl, you want to make sure that you give your new baby the best start in life possible.
Well, for one mother, Brittany Davis, her lifestyle choice was called into question when her midwife refused to help her, unless she would agree to returning to eating meat.
Now, there’s an age old debate between vegans/vegetarians/carnivores on whether eating meat (or not eating meat) is healthy/the best way forward/a waste of life, but our team of Personal Injury Solicitors in Lancaster and Preston are not here to get into that (our team would probably find it hard to even agree the answer to that debate between themselves!); instead, we want to discuss Brittany’s predicament.
Brittany shared her ordeal on Facebook, in a Vegan Pregnancy and Parenting group, screenshotting the text messages received from the midwife (not including her name, we might add), which showed that the midwife thought she was ‘starting off with ‘weak blood’’.
Regardless of your thoughts on veganism, I think that we can all agree that none of us would expect to be treated in that manner by our potential midwife!
Whilst there is nothing Brittany can real do about the midwife on this occasion, except perhaps warn people about the possibility of this happening to them, if you have been treated negligently by your midwife then our team of Personal Injury Solicitors in Preston can help.
Our team are on hand to help deal with your medical negligence claim from the very start, through to obtaining you compensation, and we deal with all claims on a “No Win, No Fee” basis.
