The article is a bit unclear......there are two likely possibilities....she was in the OB/GYN waiting room, or one of the courtesy rooms provided for parents to stay in.
so sad

The hospitality room is a great service for moms whose babies are sick. I just hope this tragedy does not ruin it for everyone. There is obviously more to this story than what is being reported.

RPD report her name was Stephanie Maylee of Rolla. And before anyone starts bashing her or the hospital, THE CAUSE OF DEATH IS NOT KNOWN AT THIS TIME!

NOBODY will know anything until the autopsy comes back! Spreading rumors and ass-u-me-ing just makes you look like a jackass. How would you like people doing that if it were your family member or close friend? Stop and think before you open your mouth or turn your fingers loose on a keyboard. Everybody has friends and family.

She had just had a baby Friday night and her family found her dead Monday morning. Her family lives in Cuba and I think she was 22. The baby is just fine from what they've said to the friends of family. The father is very heartbroken as is the rest of the family.

Hey Im one of her closet friends. Of her and her brother. This shouldn't of been put on TOPIX at all. Leave it alone. And NO she didnt do drugs. IF you don't know what u r talking about then plz be quite about it. The family is going through enough right now and a hard time.

That's how I feel about this whole site! It's nothing but rumors and bs. Leave people alone. It's honestly no ones business but the family. Many prayers going out to the family.

You got that right. Rolls Topix is all about rumoring and gossiping. Folks around he'ya seem to enjoy beating each other up emotionally (and sometimes physically) though. Insecurities? Neurosis?.. or just plain ignorance? It wreaks of a mass sub-cultural issue, think?

The news last night said the baby was early and that the state will prolly take the baby bc the dad does drugs. It will be sad if this is true bc that little baby will not know either parent. The hospital might have given her to big of a dosage of medicine for what her body could handle. I hope the family looks into that as a possibility. You just never know about this hospital.

I know OD from pain meds is easy when you're in pain. If you're in so much discomfort that you can't remember if you took them or not or if you accidentally mix pain meds. I'm so sorry to hear this. Please don't bash anyone or the hospital. It sounds like a very unfortunate situation. I pray for the baby. So sad.

If the family needs a lawyer I know a really good one. I'd at least look into a possible suit. If the hospital is responsible then there should be some action. I don't know how someone OD whole staying in a hospital.
