Concerns midwife numbers will drop due to vaccine mandates.

The Government's announced all high-risk health workers including midwives must be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 by December 1st.

College of Midwives CEO Alison Eddy told Heather du Plessis-Allan there's already a staffing struggle.

“We anticipate it will be a very, very small number. But we just have got such a tight workforce, we can't afford to lose any.”
