Description:
Today Newsroom launch a powerful new video story by investigations editor Melanie Reid into the attempted 'uplift' of a newborn baby from its mother at a maternity ward by the children's agency Oranga Tamariki.


For the first time, the process involved in taking a baby from its mother is laid bare. The filming of a video by Newsroom, carried out in the hospital room, shows the pressure a young Māori mother is subjected to as she tries to keep her seven-day-old baby.


The case, which Newsroom reported, has iwi leaders calling for a new national approach to resolve the high incidence of Māori parents losing their babies through Oranga Tamariki applications to the Family Court.


All those spoken to by Newsroom accepted intervention could be needed in cases where clear risks arose to a child's safety - but they argue there is strong whānau support for the mother and child in this case and similar examples exist of Oranga Tamariki refusing to revise its decisions to take children.


Three Māori babies a week are being 'uplifted' from their mothers and of 283 babies taken into care last year, more than 70 percent were Māori or Pasifika.
