    I wanted to point out that Ms. Goslin is “practicing without a Pennsylvania license” because Pennsylvania does not offer licensure to direct-entry midwives. The state only licenses nurse-midwives, which are a slightly different profession.

    Amish midwife controversy

    Thanks for pointing that out on the Amish midwife issue. In the article lack of licensure seems to be cited as the main complaint against her.

    From the article sounds like PA requires them to be outright RNs…or nurse-midwives as you describe it. If they do crack down I imagine this would get a big response from the Plain community. Amish for instance give birth at much higher rates in non-traditional settings and they value their midwives.

    Having checked out your blog looks like you’re a lot more qualified to comment on this than I am.
