TBILISI, DFWatch–Relatives of a baby who died at Batumi Maternity Hospital have accused the doctor of malpractice.
The mother of the baby, a 32 year old woman, was brought to the hospital four days ago. Her family says the doctor refused to perform a caesarean section and advised her to wait until Monday.
Today, it was revealed that the infant died a few days ago while still inside the womb.
“I raised this girl as an orphan and I won’t forgive her torture,” the woman’s uncle Temur Gogitidze said, according to local media. “The doctor has destroyed us.”
Representatives of the maternity hospital have so far not commented.
This is at least the third time this year that there is a complaint at Batumi Maternity Hospital. A pregnant woman died there in the end of March and relatives blamed the doctor. In February, another woman died during labor.
