Father of a baby who died during a home birth lays part of the blame on "communication problem" with doctors.

"Having home births in an isolated area when you're at least half-an-hour aware from decent medical care I think is just too high risk."
The baby, referred to as "NA" by the New South Wales deputy coroner, died during a breech birth at a property near Nimbin in northern NSW in February last year.
The coroner found in September the parents of NA were clearly warned by their doctor of the dangers of a home birth because the baby was lying sideways.
But speaking publicly for the first time since the coronial findings, NA's father, who cannot
be named, disputed this.
"We were shocked when the baby started coming out backwards," he told 7.30.
"If we knew that was going to happen, we would have had the birth in a hospital."
There was no midwife or medically qualified person present during NA's birth, in a practice often referred to as a "free birth".
