:00:47.:00:49.

all day as the coroner heard about the vital hours before the birth and

:00:50.:00:52.

death of Dayani Chauhan Ahmdd last October. It should have been a

:00:53.:00:55.

straightforward birth but the labour unit at Leicester hospital was

:00:56.:01:00.

exceptionally busy. Staff wdre overstretched and Dayani didn't

:01:01.:01:02.

receive adequate medical attention. Dayani's birth was delayed which

:01:03.:01:05.

caused brain damage which ldd to her death. The coroner recorded a

:01:06.:01:07.

narrative verdict which was welcomed by her parents.

It probably helped to get a bit of closure but as a parent your child

:01:11.:01:17.

is always your child, no matter what. We do try to move on. We're

medical professionals. The two senior staff on duty that nhght were

consultants outside the unit if necessary. We can't say sorry enough

:01:59.:02:02.

to the parents for he loss of their baby. It is such a tragedy so we'll

:02:03.:02:05.

do our utmost to get those policies rolled out and ensure everybody

:02:06.:02:12.

from from the new staff comhng in to the trust know about them. When

:02:13.:02:14.

recording her verdict, the coroner said Dayani's death was due to

:02:15.:02:17.

natural causes contributed to by neglect. She said the care simply

:02:18.:02:24.
