Where should you give birth ?  Things to consider to ensure your safety

Where should you give birth ? Things to consider to ensure your safety

Hannah Goodman is a Paralegal in our Clinical Negligence team and has put this helpful guide together looking at options that you should consider to remain safe during childbirth.  

In the UK, you have the choice to give birth at home, in hospital or in a midwifery unit, and you should be supported in whatever choice you make. It is just as important to be aware and understand which of those options may not be safe for you or your baby. Your options may be limited by your circumstances, and you may find that your priorities and needs change as time goes on.

Cosmetic Treatments Abroad

Cosmetic Treatments Abroad

There is no doubt that having cosmetic surgery or dentistry abroad is often the cheaper way to do it, however it is important to understand the possible risks involved before making the decision to travel outside of the UK for the treatment. Although the less expensive option is appealing, the price of the procedure usually reflects the quality of treatment that you will receive and can put your health and appearance at risk. One of the main reasons for this is that many treatment providers in other countries do not have to adhere to strict regulations, unlike in the UK.
