I'm late to this discussion.  I just wanted to add that when this all went down, I contacted the state medical board via email and got a response the very next day.  Here is one line from their email that I found interesting:


At this time, there is no Board Action or restriction on Dr. Dorn's authority to supervise CNMs or any other midlevel practitioner at this time. If and when the Board were to take action related to Dr. Dorn, it would be communicated in a public document posted on the Board’s website. Until such time, if ever, that occurs Dr. Dorn has a free and unrestricted license.



I am pregnant with #3 and was not planning on using one of these CNM's for a HB.  I actually wanted to deliver at the birth center in Fort Mill, but my insurance is causing a major issue with me wanting to do that, so I'll be having a HB, the only way available to me.  


I don't want to hijack this thread, but moms in the Charlotte and surrounding areas who have BCBS as their insurance should be allowed to choose a birth center if they want to.  Please check out my petition to BCBS to allow this:

I believe there are four New Dawn MWs currently attending HB and they serve within a thirty minute radius of Mission hospital.

Here's the latest about a proposed CPM bill in NC.  I believe a CNM bill will be introduced this session too.
