    Woman gives birth on pavement 'after being refused ambulance'

    A young mother gave birth on a pavement outside a hospital after she was told to make her own way there.
    Mother-of-three Carmen Blake called her midwife to ask for an ambulance when she went into labour unexpectedly with her fourth child.
    But the 27-year-old claims she was refused an ambulance and told to walk the 100m from her house in Leicester to the city's nearby Royal Infirmary.

    Yeah, this is the healthcare changes we should strive for, she gave birth for FREE!
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    A midwife can't call 911 for you. She should have called 911. 911 would have sent an ambulance. Crazy non-story. Most drs. offices won't call you an ambulance. But they will advise you to hang up and call 911.

    Nothing to do with government health care. If you are hurt you don't call the doctor working in the ER asking them to send help. You call the emergency response service directly.

    It still flies. They have emergency response services like our 911, its just 999.

    Re: Woman gives birth on pavement 'after being refused ambulance'

    I don't understand. Did she really only have time to call the doctor before the baby started coming out? Did it really take her by surprise so much that she didn't have time to call an ambulance after making this call?

    It can happen, esp w/ babies that aren't the first.
    I may be wrong.

    I guess it can happen. There was a husband and wife on the news some months back, the wife was only in labor for about 5 minutes.

    Yeah -- lots of conflicting information in the story posted by the hyper-partisan grand master of pointing out irrelevant international news stories to muddy U.S. health care reform discussions.

    Thanks vicchio for keeping as real as you possibly can...
