The previous birthing service in the town closed in 2003 and for more than a decade women have had to travel four hours to Cairns.

“It was a long day (Wednesday) and we’re tired but very pleased,’’ said midwifery consultant Deirdre Murphy. “The midwifery group practice has worked hard over the past year to get to this point.’’

Torres and Cape Hospital and Health Service Board Chair Bob McCarthy said doctors and community members had rallied for birthing services to return to the area for the past 10 years.
