Sad Birth Fatality - Mother and Child Dead When Doctor Arrived
"From Dalwallinu during the week came tidings of the death under extremely sad circumstances of Mrs. Jeanne Ann Beaumont, aged 40, at her home at Gunyidi on the Midland line on Tuesday afternoon last. Mrs. Beaumont was to have entered the maternity ward of the Dalwallinu hospital but gave birth to her child at home, unattended by either doctor or nurse. Dr. Anderson of Dalwallinu was summoned and rushed to the homestead but on arrival found both the mother and child dead."
