A review has found numerous failings in the way Oranga Tamariki handled the way it tried to remove a baby from its mother in Hawkes Bay earlier in 2019 and has resulted in widespread change of its policies.

Oranga Tamaraki's chief executive Grainne Moss said yesterday she was sorry for the harm the organisation had caused.

Jean Te Huia, the midwife of the mother whose baby Oranga Tamariki tried to take in Hastings, speaks to Susie Ferguson.
