Mothers giving birth in hospital waiting room13th October 2010
An internal report by King's College hospital in South London as revealed that some women have given birth in public waiting rooms due to too few labour beds.
Managers at the hospital stated: "Increasing demand for use of the maternity services at King’s has resulted in there being insufficient space to care for all women appropriately when giving birth and accessing care. Women are labouring in the waiting room on a regular basis while waiting for a labour room, sometimes giving birth inappropriately before this area is free."
