Those lazy, crazy, hazy days of summer...

are a bad time to be pregnant in Norway:

Pregnant women have a hard time finding a midwife in the middle of summer. Many labour wards are closed for the summer, or, if open, find their staff dramatically reduced.

The Norwegian Association of Midwives (Jordmorforeningen) thinks the situation for pregnant women during the summer is "indefensible," and calls for the public health service to be reorganised, reports news agency NTB.
