Maternity wards at overcapacity


There is a baby boom in Denmark at the moment and the maternity wards around the country are barely keeping up with it. The situation is especially desperate in the Capital Region of Denmark (despite recent massive investments). What is the problem? Midwives are refusing to take shifts in the maternity wards unless they get a salary raise. Also, despite there being dozens of open positions as midwives, nobody is applying.
