Charge for non-medical Caesareans29th September 2011
Northern Ireland health minister Edwin Poots has said that women who choose to have a Caesarean for non-medical reasons may have to pay for the operation.
He is launching a consultation on a review of maternity services and women at low risk will be encouraged to consider having their baby in a midwife-led unit or at home, if appropriate. Figures show that around 30% of deliveries in Northern Ireland are by Caesarean section, the highest level in the UK and Ireland.
