The inquest into Frances Cappuccini’s death concluded today. Neil Sheldon represented her family, instructed by Kate Rohde of Kingsley Napley.

Frances Cappuccini, already a mother of one, died following the birth of her second child, Giacomo, by Caesarean section. The school teacher suffered heavy bleeding after a caesarean section. She was subsequently operated on for a postpartum haemorrhage but never woke up from the anaesthetic.

The coroner recorded that her death was as a result of the “failures, inadequate diagnosis and treatment of her at the Tunbridge Wells Hospital on the 9th October 2012.”
