Client drove 1 hour to Perth midwifery centre to find out that she was still in early labour at 3 cm dilated.
As they were very busy in Perth, with 2 woman already in the later stages of labour, they didn't have a free bed so advised her to head back home. She didn't think she could handle a 2 hour round trip on bumpy roads so the couple had to book into the Perth travel lodge. The poor midwife was mortified they had to do this.
Only 3 hours later the couple had to return to the hospital where shortly after their baby was born.
