Theyโ€™ve seen it all: gunshots, stab injuries, motor vehicle trauma, and bodies too decomposed to identify. Itโ€™s a thankless job, processing and cleaning the deceased. But in the never-ending cycle of violence in South Africa, itโ€™s the men and women working in state morgues, who provide police with the first clues that help solve heinous crimes and get many victims back to their families for burial.

She was a popular pick for expectant parents but, with a number of new-born babies dead and three others with cerebral palsy in just four years, allegations of negligence are mounting against a well-known midwife operating in Gauteng. But thereโ€™s more to it: Furious parents claim their babies were injured after they were given potentially harmful drugs at her clinic to induce and speed up labour without their consent and some private gynaecologists have refused to work with her. Carte Blanche investigates what went wrong in these cases.

Last year, we investigated the allegations made by several young mothers that the delivery of their babies at the birthing home of one of Pretoriaโ€™s foremost midwives had gone wrong. A handful of women submitted complaints to the South African Nursing Council (SANC), the government body responsible for registering midwives and assuring their qualifications. As SANC prepares to investigate and hear evidence on the professional conduct of midwife Yolande Maritz from You & Me birthing home, Carte Blanche speaks to several more women who reached out after our first exposรฉ in October. While Maritz steadfastly denies all adverse claims against her practice and conduct, we ask what led to the birth injuries and deaths of these babies.
