The fate of this couple from Bungursari District, Tasikmalaya City, West Java is truly sad. Both of them had to lose their son who was only a day old.
The family suspects that the death of the newborn baby weighing 1.5 kg was due to medical malpractice and negligence on the part of the clinic. One of the accusations was that their baby was used as photo content for clinic purposes, without permission from the family.
Quoting a post on Instagram @nadiaanastasyasilvera, the baby’s father’s older sister told the chronology of the baby’s death. Starting from the birth process until the baby boy of the couple Nisa Armila and Erlangga Surya Pamungkas died on November 14 2023.

Chronology of 1.5-year-old babies dying
In a letter addressed to the Head of the Tasikmalaya City Health Service, the baby’s father wrote about the series of events that took his son’s life. It was explained that his wife first came to Clinic A**** on November 13 2023 at around 16.00 WIB.
At that time, his wife, who was 36 weeks pregnant, thought she would give birth to her first child. The midwife in charge of the clinic then said that the mother was in normal condition and was asked to go home because she was still opening two.
That evening, the wife returned to the clinic because she could no longer endure the pain in her stomach. However, when she arrived at the clinic, Nisa admitted that she did not receive good service, while the midwives on duty there were thought to not care.
“Then at 20.00 WIB, I took my wife back to the clinic because my wife’s condition could no longer hold back her stomach ache. Even at the clinic my wife was not served well by the midwife on duty, the midwife kept playing on her cellphone, not paying attention to my wife who “I was in a lot of pain, and the midwife said she would be checked at 24.00 WIB,” the statement said.
Not until 12 o’clock at night, the patient who was heavily pregnant experienced bleeding and amniotic fluid came out. However, he still had not received treatment from the midwife on duty. The patient only received medical treatment when he continued to cry in pain. Exactly at 10 pm, a male baby was born.
According to the husband’s statement, the midwife was still playing with her cellphone during the birthing process. Not only that, the birthing process is also used as practical material for students who are practicing at the clinic, Mother.
The clinic only tells you the baby’s weight after birth
According to the midwife on duty, the weight of the baby of the couple Nisa Armila and Erlangga Surya Pamungkas was 1.7 kg. Apart from body weight, the midwife did not tell about the baby’s length, gender, or even the stitches the patient received. Families weren’t even allowed into the delivery room.
Other allegations of poor service were also received after the baby was born. Patients who have just given birth are asked to go to the bathroom, clean themselves without the help of a midwife. At that time, the patient did everything with the help of her sister-in-law who accompanied the birth process.
“My wife was left without proper care after giving birth, there was still a lot of blood left on my wife’s body, on her back, on her stomach, on her legs, everything was not cleaned at all, only covered with a side cloth. In fact, my sister cleaned the blood after giving birth, replaced it “My wife’s clothes because there was a lot of blood on the clothes, after cleaning them, my sister put my wife back to sleep in the delivery room,” wrote Erlangga Surya Pamungkas.
After giving birth, the midwife at the clinic said that the baby’s condition was not normal because it weighed little and was not breathing well. The midwife had said that they would coordinate with the hospital to determine whether the baby needed an incubator or not.
During that time, the baby is said to be undergoing observation once every hour. However, at the same time, the clinic said that the mother had not been able to breastfeed because of the observation process.
After four hours of waiting without clarity, the midwife finally allowed the mother to give breast milk to her baby. However, again the midwife did not help with the breastfeeding process.
