To the Editor: The Rural Doctors Association (RDA) of New South Wales, of which I am President, has been involved in desperately trying to keep maternity units close to people’s homes. The conclusion formed by Ford and colleagues in their recent report,1 that women with a previous postpartum haemorrhage should only deliver in units with a blood transfusion service, appears extraordinary and contradictory to their own findings.
