Cooing Booed

A hospital has banned visitors from “cooing” over newborn babies to protect their dignity and parents’ right to confidentiality.

People have been told they should resist the temptation to touch or be too familiar with the new arrivals. They are also being warned to respect patient confidentiality by not talking to staff or parents about babies.

. . .

Debbie Lawson, the neo-natal manager at the special care baby unit, said: “We know people have good intentions but we need to respect the child.

“Cooing should be a thing of the past because these are little people with the same rights as you or me.”

  1. I know this is an old post but I simply couldn’t let it pass without commenting upon it. I have heard some ridiculous things in my time but I seriously doubt if any of them come close to this stunning piece of PC nonsense. I think I need a cup of tea to calm myself down, especially as I live in Britain where this idiotic rubbish originated.

    I sometimes wonder how certain people pass themselves off as normal human beings.

    I have two daughters who are pregnant at the moment and everyone can coo to their hearts content when the babies are born.
