Son’s delivery puts doctor at odds with his own Folsom hospital
Sacramento Bee

Six days old, Ivan Cooper slept peacefully in his mother’s arms last week, unaware of the turmoil surrounding his birth.

Cooper was born April 11 at Mercy Hospital in Folsom. His mother, Simone Morin, wanted a natural childbirth, even refusing ibuprofen after nine hours of labor. His father, Dr. Daniel Cooper, is the hospital’s former chief of staff who proudly delivered his son that morning.
