that a woman in labour, in a hospital with a fully functioning maternity unit, would be giving birth in A&E, not just taken up to maternity ?

Was there time to move her?

Was there a bed available?

I had to go to A&E whilst pregnant, and they kicked me out to maternity, despite me saying I was not in labour and nothing to do with pregnancy. Maternity kicked me out back to A&E. Oh what a fun couple of hours that was!!!

I didn't watch, but I presume she was lying down and screaming a LOT!

Depends on whether she was likely to deliver en route.

sorry, on Casualty on the TV !!!!!

They had time to go to the morgue but not maternity ?

I think we all knew you meant that.

It was a TV programme, they always over dramatise matters so yes YABU.

I wish I had a birth like the ones on tv...... if they had my birth in an episode it would last until Wednesday....

Before she went to the morgue they were encouraging her to push - so she was presumably fully dilated and contracting heavily. Yet she went to the morgue completely calm!
I think Zoe will end up with the baby.
