(IRISH INDEPENDENT) — A heavily pregnant woman who lost her landmark High Court bid challenging the HSE’s strict policy on home births, fears she could lose her home if she mounts a Supreme Court appeal.

University lecturer Aja Teehan, whose second child is due on October 13th next, challenged what she claimed is the HSE’s “blanket policy” of refusing to cover home births for women with previous caesarean section births.

This morning (FRI) High Court Judge Ms Justice Iseult O’Malley rejected her action.

Speaking after the ruling, Ms Teehan told supporters, who cheered as she left the High Court, that she was proud of what she achieved.
