Birth rights are a human right here in Australia, however homebirths have received a great deal of negative coverage as of late, following a striking coronial inquest.
An investigation into the deaths of three newborns in South Australia concluded the deaths might have been avoided had they not been homebirths. As a result, the recommendation has been made to report women with risk factors who are looking to give birth at home.
But could this push home births underground and result in more tragic outcomes?
Spokesperson for the Australian College of Midwives, Hannah Dahlen joined Angus Randall to discuss the current debate.
