Midwife's suspension upheld

A suspension order against the midwife heavily criticised for her role at the birth of baby Noah Tyler, who died after suffering brain damage when he was born, will continue. Julie Richards' suspension will be reviewed in three months, a malpractice hearing ruled this morning.

Yesterday, Cardiff coroner Mary Hassell said Ms Richards blamed "gross failure" to provide adequate care for Noah's difficult birth, and subsequent death when he was just 10 months old. Earlier in the inquest proceedings, Ms Richards admitted making "catastrophic mistakes" at the birth.
