SC Releases Details On Baby's Death At Birth Center

Sep 12, 2013

Two midwives’ failure to contact a physician during a complicated labor that resulted in a baby’s death led South Carolina to suspend their licenses as well as the license for a Fort Mill birth center, according to documents released Wednesday.

Pamala Wilson and Jacqueline Kuschner were midwives at Carolina Community Maternity Center in Fort Mill on the night that a woman in labor arrived, the emergency suspension orders released by the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control said.

Wilson and Kuschner could not be reached for comment Wednesday afternoon.
