Another example of midwives worried more about themselves and their fees than moms and babies. Another mom who has so little recourse that she has to name and shame her midwife online to warn others. Another woman who has an indescribable hole in her life and tons of out of pocket expenses that will never be paid. This profession desperately needs legislation.
For every woman who is strong enough to come forward and tell everyone about their ordeal in public, I am willing to bet there are ten more who are too heartbroken or disempowered to do anything about it.
I offered all kinds of help to the mom before noticing that she has been working hard on getting justice on her own, and has likely done all the things I offered to help with.
