    I wish rural women could birth in their own communities instead of having to travel to hospitals hours away weeks before their due dates. I'll be sending an email

    I had a private midwife and although ahe could attend the birth she had no clinical rights there so couldn't deliver the baby, even if that's what I wanted.... Makes no sense! Especially as she had an existing relationship with the public hospital.
