So, the Oregon licensing will be listed as "mandatory" on paper, but the exemption to licensing is pretty broad.
As far as malpractice insurance, that is absolutely not required and is not part of the new law.
Hey, thanks, phathui5! I see that you are from Oregon and was hoping you'd respond :) I've looked at the direct entry midwife licensing board under Oregon.gov, but can't seem to find a clear explanation of the new licensing requirements. Is there a better place to find the details of Oregon's new midwifery laws? Thanks!
