Major hospital trust bans women from having caesareans A major hospital trust has banned women from having caesareans unless there is a medical reason.
Oxford University Hospitals will not offer them to those who are frightened or have had previous traumatic births.
Some women have had to travel miles to other hospitals to give birth while their families stay in local hotels.
The trust’s policy breaches guidelines from health watchdog Nice, which say women should be allowed a caesarean without a medical reason once the risks and benefits have been explained. The Daily Mail
