Water Birth Center Didn't Know Baby Was Breach Until Mom Notified

"The parents of a baby girl who died two days after she was born with her umbilical cord wrapped around her neck filed a $7.5 million lawsuit this week against Andaluz Waterbirth Centers.

The suit claims that Olivia Bates' mother, not a midwife, was the first to realize that the girl was breech. The suit states that Stephanie Bates was kneeling in a birthing tub when she reached down and felt her daughter's legs and buttocks emerging first from the birth canal on Dec. 2, 2014."
