I'm an L&d nurse who has been on the receiving end of a free standing birth center( essentially a home birth) who has received many patients very near death and many prolapsed cords.Even though they are literally down the street, the hospital wasn't close enough for three babies who died. That's 3 too many. It is truly heartbreaking. These patients claim they understood the risk but after talking with them, they seemed to have no idea.

There is no other profession in the country where someone can make up their own certification, govern themselves, and practice said profession without serious consequences. Why these women should be allowed to do so whilst babies are dying at their hands is unconscionable. Please put a stop to this madness and save hundreds if not thousands of lives.

I have friends who have had their bodies irrevocably damaged by lay midwife incompetence. I have friends who have children who have been irrevocably damaged by lay midwife incompetence. And, I have friends who have babies who have lost their lives due to the incompetence of lay midwives. Something needs to be done.

Thanks for adding your voice.

More babies are dying from incompetent midwives PER YEAR than the total number of victims from the GM delayed recall. Action is needed.
