More than 30 witnesses will give evidence in a case of two midwives charged over the death of a Melbourne mother just hours after she gave birth in 2012.

Already a mother of one, Caroline Emily Lovell, who was 36, gave birth to a healthy baby girl in a pool in the living room at her Watsonia home in January that year.
