[ Editor’s Note: To quote Butterfly McQueen, “ I don't know nothin’ ‘ bout birthin’ no babies!” But it basically comes down to basic economics and having the proper staff. In order to maintain a delivery room and all of its accoutrements, there would need to be ‘ x’ number of babies being born in the county every month/ year. And, at least the way I understand it, there just aren’t enough to justify a full obstetrics program here, at least not at the moment. From what I do understand, the ER will be fully
