An obstetrician says two midwives who assisted in a fatal homebirth made an error when they allowed the mother to remain in a birthing pool after the delivery.

Gaye Demanuele and Melody Bourne have both been charged with the manslaughter of Caroline Lovell, allegedly as the result of gross negligence.
