Washington state is a tricky one--<br>
here is the address for the statute--<a href="http://apps.leg.wa.gov/RCW/default.aspx?cite=18.50" target="_blank">http://apps.leg.wa.gov/RCW/default.aspx?cite=18.50</a><br>
and here is the rules page--<a href="http://apps.leg.wa.gov/WAC/default.aspx?cite=246-834" target="_blank">http://apps.leg.wa.gov/WAC/default.aspx?cite=246-834</a><br><br>
so there is no LAW regulating this- if your midwife belongs to MAWS then she is<br>
legally bound by the protocols set forward by that organization and if the organization says 37 weeks then that is the "law" for that midwife. If she has does not belong to that organization she has her own set of protocols- but she may very well be investigated<br>
36 weeks use to be not considered preterm it is now considered preterm by many providers--
