All Eyes on the Midwives
Lest anyone thought I had forgotten about the midwives, here’s another update. OK, not exactly an update, because the only news in the Kansas City Star article is this:
Before the law went into effect, however, opponents filed a lawsuit seeking to overturn it. The case has since made it to the Missouri Supreme Court, though attorneys don’t expect oral arguments until sometime next year.
For now, the issue has captured a nationwide audience and has been spotlighted on media outlets such as Fox News. And it’s the talk of midwifery circles.
However, the article does include a picture of a bunch of cute kids who were delivered by midwives, and some useful definitions of different kinds of midwives for those of you who
haven’t been obsessing over the midwife saga like I have need a refresher. I just had to point out this article because I couldn’t let Midwifery Week go by without a post on the subject.
