Distraught parents of a baby who died after suffering brain damage during his breech birth are left with unanswered questions about their son’s care. Baby Albert died as a result of hypoxic-ischemia brain injuries sustained during or slightly before his unplanned emergency breech birth at home in June 2018. An inquest heard evidence from the family regarding their concerns over the decision making by the medics and midwives at Queen Alexandra Hospital in Portsmouth.
