Midwife Ordered To Stop Practice

Last updated on Monday, August 21, 2006

(MARTINSVILLE) - A 73-year-old Morgan County woman has been ordered by a judge to stop practicing midwifery following the death of an infant she delivered.

Doris White delivered a premature baby girl in Martinsville in May of 2005. The infant died six days later.

White was indicted in November of 2005 on a felony charge of practicing midwifery without a license. A permanent injunction was issued against White, but she told the judge she couldn't promise to abide his orders.
