Midwife charged with negligence
A Prague court has opened a case against a midwife who has been charged with negligence resulting in grievous bodily harm. The baby survived, but due to problems during the birth suffered irreversible brain damage. Medics who were called to the scene said they found the newborn baby was suffering from hypothermia and laboratory tests showed it had been cut off from its oxygen supply for a brief period. The midwife is pleading not guilty, saying she has not neglected anything and could not be held responsible for the child’s condition. If found guilty, she could face between 6 months and four years in prison.
