The Lumsden Maternity Crisis

The response to our A Labour of Truth documentary has been so strong that our coverage has been extended to this additional feature, looking at the state of maternity services in Te Anau and Lumsden. Doctors and midwives in those towns make a passionate plea for changes to a maternity system that they claim will eventually claim the lives of both mothers and babies.

Thanks to production partners Storyworks and NZ On Air.
