    Oh god I don't think I can watch it! The poor families who have been misrepresented.

    How devastating for the families to have their grief exploited in this way. Totally unethical reporting. Not surprising coming from Channel 7.

    Ah maybe but she wasn't present at all of them as a MW but as birth support, AFAIK she had handed in her registration so could no longer act as a MW if she did she faced charges of practising without a licence?

    I hate these shows. What a manipulative and exploitative way to grab headlines by destroying people's lives.

    Regardless if you believe in home births, it is not fair to demonise a midwife who is trying to assist couples with their birthing choice. It is just wrong to mislead people to sensationalise a 10 minute story for ratings.

    I 100% agree with this. For me, I would not choose to home birth but the way this is being sensationalised is shocking.

    I only know what has been in the media regarding this lady so excuse my ignorance, but may I ask why you're feeling bad for her? The media has portrayed her as someone that has no regard for bub's safety.

    I have just edited/deleted a few posts to remove reference to J.F.
    She requested a long time ago that her name and her website not be discussed on BH and vice versa also as she is a past member it falls under the gossiping rules. In light of that any reference to her will be removed by the moderating team.
