A study by Kate Fitzpatrick (lead author), Jennifer Kurinczuk and Maria Quigley from the NPEU, and Sohinee Bhattacharya, investigating the short-term outcomes of mothers and babies following a previous caesarean section has had quite a bit of media coverage over the past week. 

The study was published on 24th September 2019 in PLOS Medicine in an article titled, Planned mode of delivery after previous cesarean section and short-term maternal and perinatal outcomes: a population-based record linkage cohort study in Scotland

BBC News featured this study in a health article titled Repeart Caesareans 'often safer birth option'.

Kate was also interviewed (1:09:40) by Jeremy Vine on his BBC radio 2 show: Boris Johnson and C-sections.
