An investigation is under way after a mother claimed she gave birth to her premature baby on a hospital toilet.
Lisa Rice says doctors had insisted she was not pregnant before she gave birth to a girl she named Jessica, who was stillborn.
A spokesman for Medway Maritime Hospital in Gillingham, Kent, says it will liaise with Miss Rice and her partner when the facts have been established. Rice and her partner J. Beer believe their daughter may still be alive if staff had acted differently.
Jessica, who was due to be born early next month, was born on October 31, weighing just under 1lb.
