 Oz Hospitals Ban Dads from Filming Birth After Media Report on Ill Effects

Victorian hospitals have banned fathers from recording their children's birth.

Video cameras are being banned in birthing suites as hospitals are worried about legal repercussions, staff privacy and unnecessary distractions, reports the Courier Mail.

The revelation comes a month after the Herald Sun reported almost 20 million dollars was paid in secret from court settlements in 2009 to families whose babies suffered bungled births in Victoria's public hospitals.

Obstetrics accounted for more compensation payouts than any other field of medicine.

The boom in video recording devices, such as mobile phones, is forcing hospitals to develop protocols on the filming of births - and many are choosing to ban it.
