It's my impression and personal experience that ABC IS doing the best they can to "clean up this mess". What more can they do, but take care of moms in order of when they are due? There's only 6 or so people working in that practice and they ALL have families ALL need to sleep at some point in time and ALL have their own limitations in how quickly things can be done. There are also HUGE limitations in referring moms who want a home birth because of VERY few HB CNMs and no doubt many finical limitation because of clients health ins. This "chiding" was really a fair chance at defending ABC - especially since SO many people reading here are taking people's guesses, assumptions and hear-say as TRUTH.
It's appalling how many people are ready for a good "witch burning".
No person is perfect - I'm not deifying my midwife. If we have our eyes open we can easily see that midwives of all certifications are under HUGE scrutiny; in this state especially. Some hospitals, physicians practices, and whatever other boards or committees are waiting to pounce on any chance they get to wipe midwives out of our birth community. Every one here adding to the idle chatter without knowing the facts is only helping the antagonist's cause.
