M25 road rage killer freed from jail

M25 road rage killer freed from jail M25 road rage killer Kenneth Noye has been freed from jail, the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) has confirmed. Noye, now 71, stabbed to death 21-year-old Stephen Cameron in an attack on the motorway in Kent in 1996, in front of the victim's 17-year-old fiancee. He was sentenced to life with a minimum term of 16 years in 2000. Confirming Noye's release from prison, an MoJ spokesman said: "We understand this will be a distressing decision for the family of Stephen Cameron and our thoughts remain with them.

SAO PAULO, Brazil —The white-gloved women laid chocolates and cakes on silver trays. They filled the crystal vases with roses. Now the guests were arriving. Mariana Casmalla had been buffed, primped and polished in preparation for this moment.

She was ready for her C-section.

“It’s a special occasion,” explained Casmalla, a 28-year-old dental surgeon, batting professionally made-up eyes.

“Don’t we get dressed up for parties and special dates? It’s the same thing.”

Elective Caesarean sections have long been a status symbol among Brazil’s elite, a way for some of the country’s wealthier women to avoid the unpredictability of natural childbirth. The country has one of the highest rates of Caesarean births in the world — they account for 55.5 percent of all deliveries in Brazil, spiking to 84 percent in private hospitals, according to the Public Health Ministry. The rate in the United States for all hospitals is 32.9 percent.

Now the phenomenon is inspiring a new industry of party planners, makeup artists and caterers, focused on turning these highly orchestrated operations into wedding-like spectacles, produced for an audience.

At the Sao Luiz private hospital in Sao Paulo, a mother-to-be can get her hair and makeup done in her hospital room. For 2,000 reais per day — about $500 — her family can rent out the presidential suite, with a living room and bathroom for guests, a balcony and minibar. Mothers can request their favorite flowers and magazines, and even change the furniture if it clashes with their planned decorations. A 22-story maternity ward now under construction will include a wine cellar and ballroom.

They don’t want to hit traffic on the way to the hospital. They want to get their nails done, get a wax, to plan it like an event.”

Still, da Costa and other health professionals are ambivalent. The World Health Organization has long campaigned to reduce elective C-sections, which are nearly twice as deadly for mothers than natural births and require longer recovery times for mothers and babies.

The C - section rate in the US is far higher than experts advise, and all that surgery hasn't translated into better outcomes for mothers or newborns. Women in the United States are giving birth by Cesarean section far more often than is necessary to keep maternal and neonatal mortality rates low.

They ’re so important to me. We seem to be very friendly and enthusiastic about participating in all the school events. What does school mean to you? I prefer doing nothing, just hanging out, reading books and etc. And I usually do it after the lessons when I don’t have too much homework.

C-sections are all the rage in Brazil. So too, now, are fancy parties to watch them.

In Brazil, public health officials and some of the country’s top doctors have worked to cure the upper class of its penchant for the procedure.

Costs vary, but C-sections are generally more expensive than natural childbirths. While the risk of maternal death in well-equipped private hospitals is low, hemorrhage and infection are more likely in an elective Caesarean than in a natural birth. For babies, C-sections have been linked to higher rates of respiratory distress, diabetes and high blood pressure.

“Here we had the opposite statistics,” said Rodrigo Aguiar, a director at Brazil’s National ­Supplementary Health Agency, which regulates private hospitals.

The numbers were even more pronounced during the holiday months, he said, when women and doctors called for elective C-sections before the baby was ready to be born. This led to higher rates of respiratory problems for infants and prolonged hospital stays for both mothers and babies.

“We saw that we had to reevaluate these percentages and make sure that birth decisions were being geared toward the health of the mother and the child, and not for convenience,” Aguiar said.

Brazil’s Health Ministry has taken steps to reduce what it calls the Caesarean “epidemic.” In 2016, the government banned medically unnecessary C-sections before 39 weeks.

C-sections are all the rage in Brazil. So too, now, are fancy parties to watch them. © Provided by WP Company LLC d/b/a The Washington Post Brazilian women historically have had good reason to fear natural birth. The country’s overwhelmed public health system meant that doctors and nurses lacked the resources to closely monitor women through hours of labor. C-sections allowed the staff to closely monitor mothers for a shorter amount of time.

At private hospitals, the procedure has gained favor both among mothers — who want their personal doctors, not the on-call staff at the hospital, to deliver their babies — and among doctors juggling busy schedules.

Olímpio de Moraes Filho, president of the Brazilian Federation of Obstetrics and Gynecology, says Caesarean sections fit some lifestyles.

“C-sections today are much safer than they were 30 years ago,” he said. “Things are changing. Women are in the job market. Couples are trying to schedule a moment when the family can get together.”

As Casmalla was wheeled to her operating room, 15 of her closest family members and friends trailed behind. They gathered around the window, ears pressed to the wall, listening for the baby’s first wail.

When the doctor pulled Lorena from the incision in Casmalla’s abdomen, the window turned transparent. Casmalla gave the audience a thumbs-up.

“She’s here!,” said Casmalla’s mother-in-law, Marisol, tearing up. Relatives watching on FaceTime asked for closer looks.

She says new mothers increasingly prefer receiving guests at the hospital, rather than at home.

“The mom has just given birth, she is learning to breast-feed, she doesn’t want to entertain at home,” Baracat said. “So while she’s getting ready for the birth, we are getting ready to host.”

Baracat’s clients spend upward of $10,000 for services that include floral arrangements, guest books, monogrammed sheets, personalized water bottles, and silver-plated favors for guests.

Women who have natural births often seek these services, too. Nina Materna, another ­party-planning service, has three hotlines that women can call as they go into labor. The company promises to have fully sterilized decorations up within eight hours. But C-sections allow mothers another level of planning.

In 2015, Linus Pauling Fascina, director of the maternity ward at Einstein, called together doctors, doulas, midwives, feminist activists and government officials to discuss ways to increase the rate of natural births in Brazil’s private hospitals.

The group launched the Appropriate Birth Project, a partnership with 35 hospitals to prioritize natural deliveries among the country’s elite.

One of their first steps was to bring the luxury and family experience associated with Caesareans to natural childbirth.

So too, now, are fancy parties to watch them. © Provided by WP Company LLC d/b/a The Washington Post Einstein hospital opened five new natural-birth centers with private showers and tubs. At Sao Luiz, women giving birth naturally can choose the color of the lighting of their in-room whirlpool bathtubs. Fairy lights on the ceiling can turn blue or red, depending on the mood of the patient. All rooms are equipped with MP3 players that patients can load with personalized playlists.

Results came quickly. In four years, the rate of natural births at Einstein rose from 18 percent to nearly 50 percent. The program has expanded to more than 200 hospitals.

“The changes have to be concurrent for everyone: women, their families, their workplace, doctors, nurses,” Fascina said. “When the husband comes in and says, ‘I’m working, I need to know the date of the birth’ — it’s about learning to plan for the unplannable.”

For Bruna Viera, 32, a natural birth was always out of the question.

“It doesn’t fit with our lifestyle,” she said. “I’m a doctor, and my husband is, too. We have a very planned life and had to take vacation for the baby to be born.”

Viera spent weeks planning the drinks and decorations for her maternity room at Sao Luiz. By the time baby Arthur made his debut last month, her hospital room was decorated with blue and white balloons, the fridge was stocked with rum barrel-aged beer, and the table of her luxury suite was lined with succulent plants — parting gifts for the 80 guests she expected that weekend.

Many moms suffer from postpartum depression and feel isolated. Your hormones are raging. But to be surrounded by the people you love, people who saw you grow up, is extraordinary.”

As a half-dozen of her mother’s friends cooed at the baby, her husband popped open a bottle of wine.

Grandmother Lucimeire Viera swayed baby Arthur in her arms while holding a glass of merlot.

“You see, darling,” she explained to the baby. “Life’s a party.”
