Baby boom highlights obstetricians' shortage in WA: AMA

Link

A baby boom in Western Australia has highlighted a shortage of doctors trained to deliver them ...

WA has a surging population ... but the State has the worst ratio of obstetricians and gynaecologists per head of population ...

Naturally, as this has been reported by the AMA, the focus is on the lack of obstetricians available to deliver babies. Anyone would think from this article that a baby simply couldn't arrive into this world without an obstetrician. Sometimes that is the case. However, for the most part, a midwife is all that is needed to ensure the safe arrival of a new baby.
