An inquest into the death of a baby just half an hour after birth at Ipswich Hospital at is to begin on 29th September for two days.

Emma Strachan, 29, from near Framlingham , went into spontaneous labour on 24 January this year with the plan to deliver her baby in the breech position.  However, after a delay in delivering the head, her baby girl Bonnie May was born in a very poor condition.  Tragically, Bonnie did not respond to efforts to resuscitate her and staff were unable to save her.  

The devastated parents Emma and James Strachan instructed specialist medical negligence lawyers at Irwin Mitchell’s Cambridge office to investigate the care provided during the birth and to represent them at the Inquest at the IP City Centre on Bath Street, Ipswich, on 29 and 30th September

Expert Opinion
“The family has had such a distressing time this past eight months and they are desperate for answers as to what happened.

“They have many concerns about the care provided during the birth and are expecting to find the evidence at the inquest very difficult to listen to. They just want to ensure that any potential lessons are learnt so that others don’t suffer as they have.”
