For folks who want to get the story on Evelyn's battle to get her CNM license back you can go to this link.  There is addition links there for anyone interested in various fundraisers to help pay her legal bills as well.  Thanks!

There are also ways to send in pictures or testimonials about Evelyn if you are so inclined.

This makes me so sad. I just called her office today. I really wanted a home birth :(

So is there a chance that Evelyn will get her license back? Is there going to be another hearing or is her license just suspended indefinitely?

 

I apologize in advance if that is listed somewhere, I may have missed it. Someone linked me the Arbutus Patch article and I didn't see any info on that when I read it.

She is waiting on a hearing date.  The Maryland board of nursing is under no time constraint.  She will need our support by letters and presence at said hearing.

I'm glad to see this update -- I came onto the Mothering boards specifically hoping to find this update.  Evelyn is a phenomenal care provider and I credit her entire team with the safe, healthy homebirth of my first child - who has continued to thrive and develop into a happy, joyous boy.  I loved Evelyn's care so much that I transfered my well woman check-ups to her as well.  I am happy to submit testimony or testify before the board when the time comes.  I emailed Diane at the addy on the website, but haven't heard back - so please let me know how I can help.

 

As our baby boy turns one next month, we are planning to TTC number 2.  Does anyone have suggestions of whom to see if we were to get pregnant again?  I live in North AA County and work in Annapolis, and would like to have another homebirth with a CNM (since my insurance covers that).  Ideally, I would love to begin my pre-natal care with one of the two birthing centers in Annapolis (since I am a health provider myself and have had many patients whom have enjoyed their care), and then transfer back to Evelyn for the actual home birth provided the Nursing Board gets their heads out of their @##es and restored her license.  Does anyone know how and if the birthing centers would allow this?

kesrya, that's my current plan and I am pregnant and due in June.  I'm currently receiving care at Special Beginnings.  I haven't actually told them that I plan to transfer if/when Evelyn gets her license back.  But that is what I plan to do if it happens before June.

Well, please let us know specifics when and if the time comes- I'd like to write a letter in support, and would attend the hearing if I could swing it.

I see the fundraiser has been rescheduled for 1/28.  Does anyone know what time the event begins?  It does not specify on the website.

I just read both patch articles that I could find.

 

They state that the # of midwives that will attend home births is "small". My question is I thought Evelyn was the only mw in MD attending homebirths, so who are the other ones???

There are several others.  More down towards DC then the northern part of the state.

Susad Dodge is one, she is in Anne Arundel County and sticks close to there. There's one up by Delaware and M.A.M.A.s in Tacoma Park. I am sure I am missing a few on that list.

Evelyn recommended a few CNM's for me a while ago, since she herself is so frustratingly not able to attend home births (which, with my 4th child due in April, burns me up!!). Her recommendations were:

 

Lori Serabo

Susan Dodge

Nannette Jenkins

 

I have not used any of these ladies personally but they are all on Facebook and if Evelyn says they are ok, then that's good enough for me. I had the pleasure of dealing with Evelyn at the Baltimore Birth Center where I had my first VBAC water birth in 2002, and I just want to say I desperately hope this woman is reinstated. She's one of the few people in this state with the kind of respect for birth that I think ALL providers should have.

Not every midwife listed is a CNM.

Please, please do not post the names of any CPM or DEM on this public list.  Things are unbelievably scary out there and posting their names puts them at risk.  Delaware is gearing up for a nice weeding out of midwives now too.  Please delete reference to her.

Nanette and Susan are licensed CNMs in MD.  Susan doesn't do vbac.  Not sure what Nanette's policies are.  She lives in West VA so you have to be willing to drive out there for prenatals and she doesn't come all the way into MD.  More Frederick and Western Howard from what I understand (like to maybe Mt. Airy?).  I spoke to someone who works with her a while back...

Thanks -- I just edited my post and reported the other one to be edited.
