Care for obese pregnant women lacking19th March 2010
The Centre for Maternal and Child Enquiries has warned that maternity services for obese women are not good enough and may be putting mothers-to-be at risk.
It said units were short of basic equipment like extra-wide operating tables and beds and that a poll of UK services revealed that obese pregnant women were not getting the right advice and assessments. However, the Department of Health has maintained that the UK remained "one of the safest countries in the world to have a baby".
