Midwives Seek Autonomy in N.C.

Record #:
North Carolina's high rate of fetal and neonatal mortality ranks the state in the bottom sixth of the country. Midwifery practiced without the supervision of a physician is illegal in eleven states. North Carolina stopped the practice twenty-five years ago. A House committee of the General Assembly is studying the merits of licensing independent midwives. A report is expected by the end of 2008.
