Two women charged over fatal homebirth that killed mum
Two women have been charged with negligent homicide over the death of a woman during an allegedly botched home birth in Melbourne in 2012.
A Preston woman, 59, and a 42-year-old woman from Mullumbimby in NSW have been charged with negligent manslaughter over the death of Caroline Lovell in January 2012.
The 36-year-old Watsonia woman died in the Austin Hospital from massive blood loss after the birth.
The mother delivered a healthy baby girl before she died, an inquest found.
Both women will face Melbourne Magistrates Court next week.
