M is for the many times...

We've turned you away, for lack of room at the incubators:
More than four in ten maternity units in NHS hospitals have turned away women in labour and forced them to travel miles to give birth, according to new figures.

The statistics show the true scale of the crisis facing maternity units across the country, which could be putting the lives of mothers and babies at risk.

Many mothers-to-be have been forced to travel miles away from home after the doors were closed at their local NHS hospital.
