Media reports on NICE caesarean debate quite balanced

Media debate over one of the key changes to the NICE caesarean guideline has been very thorough throughout the day. Focus has primarily been on the recommendation that women should have the right to request a caesarean even when they do not have a medical indication for one, (assuming that request follows detailed discussion about the benefits and risks of both modes of birth).

What is particularly impressive about the media coverage is the balance and accuracy achieved in so many of the interviews and reports.
