A La Habra doctor, accused by the state medical board of negligence in the delivery of four babies and of sexual misconduct while treating five mothers at his birthing clinic, was ordered Thursday by a Superior Court judge to discontinue "water births," the method of delivery used in one of the cases under investigation.
