I have heard that there is more to this than meets the eye but unless its something truly horrifying, then there just seems no excuse for this. We have no homebirth service and anyone who calls for a midwife because of a fast labour or who wants a homebirth is being sent partamedics to transfer only. The labour ward is having to call in on-call midwives if it gets busy and the postnatal ward is barely staffed. I’m prepared to wonder about it purely because he has asked for hearing details not to be disclosed which seems slightly odd possibly. I’ve never heard anything about him muttered that smacks of the worrying though, its always been utterly positive.
Bodes well for 9 weeks time :~(
