Successful Birth Following C-Section

According to a lawyer involved in the case, the girl has given birth to a child after undergoing a C-section.

Both mother and child are reported to be in good health.

Needle Phobia and Health Concerns

Lawyers representing the doctors treating the teenager informed the judge that she had a fear of needles.

However, they expressed concerns about the baby’s health and argued that a C-section was the safest method of delivery.

Anonymity and Confidentiality

Consideration of Best Interests

Barrister Vikram Sachdeva KC, leading the legal team representing the trust, informed the judge about the girl’s significant psychiatric history and past experiences of sexual exploitation.

Ruling in Favor of Caesarean Section

After careful consideration, Mr Justice Poole concluded that a caesarean section was in the best interests of the girl.
