Caroline Lovell, a home birth advocate, died in childbirth on January 24th.
The question at the end of the article asks if this changes your feelings on homebirths. I can't really say because I can't tell from the article if she gave birth at home or at the hospital. I'm thinking this was a hospital birth because of this blurb:
Caroline Lovell, who advocated for midwife funding and legal protection in Australia, died Jan. 24, a day after she was rushed to the hospital during labor, according to the Herald Sun newspaper.
I wonder if her death will have an impact on those who are trying to decide between a hospital birth and a home birth.
