It is a ridiculous oversimplification as well, that does not take into account laws governing each state and *who* is allowed to practice midwifery nor the background of every single "lay" midwife. Not a few of whom are former L&D nurses or etms or some other medical background.
And you're right Holly, I don't give a hoot what the who has to say (I don't vax my kids either!) merely pointing out the irony that you cling so tighly to what you claim they say but are in total contrast to a man who worked there as director for many years. Guess he didn't listen to his own advice???
