A WOMAN is taking Raffles Hospital to court after alleged complications during the birth of her second child led to his suffering irreversible brain damage.

She is claiming that the hospital did not warn her adequately about the risks of having her second child delivered vaginally after her first had been born by caesarean section.

She is alleging that the hospital failed to spot signs of trouble during labour and avoid damage to her baby.
