In her 50 years of delivering babies, Caroline De Costa has not only witnessed change, she's propelled it.

She's Australia's first female professor of obstetrics and gynaecology. She studied her medical degree while pregnant and as a single mother. And she was instrumental in the fight for women's reproductive rights in Australia and in Ireland, even smuggling IUDs and condoms into Dublin.
