Maternity waiting lists?

How long should the waiting list for a pregnant woman be ? I would suggest it is kept under 9 months!

Rubbish joke I know, it might not be such a laugh for the women turned away from maternity units because of a lack of midwives. After ten years of Labour crowing about how much money they have spent on health, stories like this just shouldn’t exist, yet this is just one in a long string of closures, redundancies and cuts.

http://www.birthguide.co.uk/ has a list of the hospitals that had the most closures, my wife was particularly disappointed to see that four out of the top ten hospitals were in her home county of Sussex.
