“Baby Blues”

Frontline’s story last month on the politics of birth prompted the biggest response to any of our stories this year. Many people criticised the story as alarmist, others applauded it as timely. Among those who called or wrote were a number of families with their own personal stories of the heartache that surrounds difficult birth. The birthing debate has intensified. A special two part report on the disturbing stories of what can happen when the system fails you, despite your best efforts to be prepared. Why is it that in this day and age so much doubt still surrounds who is ultimately responsible? Are clearer guidelines needed to give every new life the best chance possible?

Speakers: Susan Rowberry, Prof Colin Mantell (Auckland Medical School), Christine O’Neill (Scott’s Mother), Pat O’Neill (Father), Patricia Cosgrove (Customer Services Co-ordinator, Whakatane Hospital), “Elizabeth”, Dr Karen Poutasi (CEO, Wellington Area Hospital Board), Karen Guilliland (NZ College of Midwives), Tony Baird (Obstetrician & Gynaecologist).
