If you look back to the 2005 honours - you will see that the staff who cared for Sophie and Louise were honoured - they were all NHS medics and not all consultants (anaesthetists, gynaecologist & obstetrician). I think the Queens gynaecologist was in attendance - but did not participate in events. Sophie was treated in ITU and maternity - her care was provided by the NHS & NHS staff. There are no 'private' beds in intensive care. Treatment is the same for all. I have a friend who worked in this intensive care unit at the time, hence my knowledge.
Don't forget private consultants are also usually Full Time NHS consultants - so are not any more 'highly specialised' for working in a private capacity. Usually the benefit of receiving private care means shorter waiting times, a single room and consultant care. However, many private hospitals cannot offer intensive care, 24 hour senior medical cover and other life saving procedures.
This is usually such a bouyant good news thread. Shall we move on ? :-)

On that we can agree! Lets just hope she doesn't sponge off of the taxpayers this time!

Hi all

New to this so....

I've been through extreme pregnancy complications myself and you rarely have a normal delivery once you have been through something like Sophie did with Louise.

My prediction is she will have a planned c-section a week before due date - so if that's christmas day like one of the articles said I think it will be early this week Monday or Tuesday.

The pregnancy was announced on July 2nd when the countess was in her thirteenth week of pregnancy (just after the regular ultrasound) Due date will be January 7th 2008.
I think you could be right with the c-section a week before due date.
That confirms a planned c-section on December 31st.
Christmas day was only mentioned as the first day of reservation for the hospital-room.
Most reservations are already done for the week before delivery.
In sixteen days the baby will be born.

Therefore the docters will wait as long as possible before acting.
The countess seems to me a lady, who will let it come as it will come, will make it the best for her child and will not have any problems to skip the Christmas-party at Sandringham this year.
I think it is wise to assume that the birth will take place around December 31st

I know the Daily Mail is not always reliable, so we will just have to wait and see when the new little Lord or Lady will make his or her appearance. It's really hard to predict for sure when the Countess is due, or when she will possibly have a C Section, but it's fun to try. The only ones that really know her due date is probably the royal family and her doctor.

I just hope for a safe delivery of a healthy baby.

I just hope, besides for a healthy baby, that the Countess delivers sooner than later because the suspense is near agony! It will be nice is the DM is right this time. I think I can wait until Friday....

I don't know if the Daily Mail was right in the first place, but now Hello and Hola are also saying that Sophie will have a C-section on Friday. Needless to say, they aren't the most reliable sources but...who knows?

Whenever it may be, hopefully everything will be just fine.

I suppose Hello and Hola took over the information from the Daily Mail.
I am sure that the Daily Mail made up this story about the lonely Xmas and just took a guess about friday.

Now that the Countess has safely delivered a baby boy, we are closing this thread.
If you want to congratulate the family, you can do it in Sophie gave birth to a boy: December 17, 2007 thread.

Thank you all for the exiting baby watch!
