A hospital banned from providing full birthing services because of a shortage of obstetricians and gynaecologists is now back offering care to women with low-risk pregnancies.

As a result of a staffing crisis, Gladstone Hospital in Queensland was placed on a birthing bypass last year, with women being diverted to hospitals more than 100km away.
