The same problem is happening in some SA Outback towns. There is no Aenethitist if needed in an emergency so they can’t do an emergency C-Section. Sometimes RFDS are not able to cope with all the emergency calls they get. Their plane and crew can be out on an emergency when more calls come in. A lot of expectant Mums are either going to large country areas where there are big hospitals or going to their capital city. Sometimes Premature babies are flown from large country hospitals to city hospitals.
