Karen took me on as a client at 38 weeks when Evelyn decided that she wasn't able to attend me at home due to low iron and her assistant saying that we didn't have all of our supplies ready (they were all here except the crockpot). Evelyn called me on a Saturday night when I was 38 weeks along to tell me that she wanted me to go to the hospital if I went into labor. If it wasn't for Karen, baby #4 would have been an unassisted homebirth (not really my thing).
KC doesn't mind her name being out there these days. It's a legality thing that she is just accepted and lives with openly. We hope one day CPMs will hold a license similar to many other states but not like VAs which is terrible.
This is only partially true. Yes, she does accept that if she gets into trouble with the law someday, it is meant to be. (and has successfully fought and won a case in PA a couple years back) She does not like to be named or want her personal information on open internet sites and has had me go online and try to get her information removed from websites on more than one occasion. We had a conversation about this just a couple months ago. I at least try to provide a counterpoint of view when someone is maligning her with false information if I can't get it taken down. Nor does she tell her clients to put her name on the birth certificate forms when the HD home visit takes place. So she is open, but careful...
Now in DC she goes to the office with mothers and puts her name on the birth certificate cause DC govt is so incompetent they don't know they aren't following their own laws about DEMs.
