"I'd love a $100 voucher but I'm not sure I qualify..." "Nonsense, Milo was born an hour ago, Blake five minutes later. That makes you a second time mum in my book. I'll help you pack... 30 November, 2007

Reference Number: DCDL-0004489

Shows a woman who has just given birth sitting up in bed flanked by twins. She says she would love a $100 voucher but doesn't think she qualifies. The doctor tells her that she is talking nonsense, that her babies were born five minutes apart and so she is a second time mother. Refers to the row over the Wellington District Health Board floating the idea of giving $100 vouchers to second time mothers provided they leave the hospital within 6 hours. The idea floated and was quashed because of the outcry.
