Birthing ‘Hub’ Hubbub in Central Otago

In case you missed the story — a baby was born in the car park of the Lumsden maternal and child hub on Friday when the mother’s labour progressed so rapidly she could not get inside the hub soon enough.

It’s the third emergency birth since the Lumsden Maternity centre was downgraded in April from a primary birthing unit to a ‘maternal and child hub’.

In May Amanda McIvor gave birth to baby Levi in the back of an ambulance and earlier this month another mother gave birth without full services at the hub.
