Too posh to push women can forget relying on their posh medical insurance to step in and negate the hard labour.
Unless there is medical need, many companies will no longer pay out for mums wanting a Caesarean birth.
Good. Caesareans account for 50 per cent of all births in private hospitals. How ever did we get to the stage where women are allowed to manage the births of their babies for no better reason than they can’t handle either the fear, or the inconvenience, of having them naturally?
Those who want to fit childbirth into their diaries like they would a hairdressing appointment should be prepared to pay for it.
