Description

Sam shares a really interesting and emotional story of her son Olly's birth. When she experienced contractions at 34 weeks she was turned away from 2 nearby private hospitals and found herself receiving care at the public hospital without the support of her husband (who was operating a game drive). Sam shares about Olly's ICU stay and finishes the episode speaking about a subsequent miscarriage.

This is a raw and emotional episode, so if you are feeling sensitive than maybe give this episode a miss for another time.

Please watch out for part 2 of Sam's story!
