Family of Jehovah's Witness mum who bled to death after son's birth win £870k compensation
The Daily Express, 28 April 2017
The devastated family of a Jehovah's Witness mum who bled to death following her son's birth have won £870,000 compensation from the NHS.
Estera Lenczuk died when she was just 33 after her son was born at the Whittington Hospital, in Archway, north London, in January 2012.
Mrs Lenczuk' son, now aged five, was born by emergency caesarean and she suffered a massive haemorrhage soon afterwards.
The family's lawyers said medics had known throughout her pregnancy that she was a Jehovah's Witness and would not accept transfusions.
However alternative treatment was not delivered quickly enough to stem the flow of blood, they claimed.
Stephen Bailey, for the NHS trust, said it was "a very sad case from which important lessons have been learnt".
Approving the payout, Judge Pearce said: "I am quite satisfied that this settlement is a proper one, in the interests in particular of the child."
