A Snippet on Surveillance and Child Protection (from 2014)

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

From a press release by the British Association for Improvements in the Maternity Services:

"Without their knowledge, every pregnant woman (and expectant father) is screened by the UK's National Health Service (NHS) to see if they may be a risk to the child, and they are monitored for risk factors like previous mental illness, domestic violence, being a teenager, unemployed, homeless, a former or current drug user, etc. They are then automatically referred to social services, who may hold child protection planning meetings before the baby is born."
