Maybe not all, and they might be looking for legal proof rather than suspicions...the whole legallity thing scares me to bits after reading way too many stories of midwives being prosecuted because the body of a certain profession feels threatened by them and pressures politicians into making them illegal...I'd rather the midwives fly under the radar and be able to serve us women without being afraid they'll get prosecuted for their name being out there.
