More birth pool concern; ECHO SHORTS.
HEALTH officials investigating a case of Legionnaires' disease in a baby which was linked to a home birthing pool have found more contaminated pools.
Public Health England (PHE) has reiterated its advice not to use pre-heated home birthing pools after more pools tested positive for Legionella, the bug which can cause Legionnaires' disease.
The health authority cautioned against the use of the pools after a baby born in one contracted Legionnaires' disease. The baby was being treated in intensive care in a hospital but PHE refused to give any update on its health, saying the case was "now subject to a police investigation."
